What more idyllic setting could there be for the new home of L.M. Montgomery's famed Anne and her groom, Gilbert Blythe, than a white cottage nestled into the ocean shore and surrounded by gardens and new friends? After a Green Gables wedding, Anne and Gilbert settle in Four Winds Harbour as Gilbert starts his medical practice. Great happiness, as well as sorrow, greets the newlyweds as their early years together unfold. Narrating the work of a consummate storyteller is a tall order, and Barbara Caruso rises to the occasion. She is an unobtrusive narrator, letting the power of each episode take center stage. All the while, she adds her mark to each personality--the spunk and glow of Anne, the eccentricity of Miss Cornelia, the heartache of Leslie, the honesty of Captain Jim--and brings merit to the recording.
