Audible Editor Reviews

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 - and brings merit to the recording.

Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed author L.M. Montgomery continues the story of Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea in Anne's House of Dreams. Anne and Gilbert move to Four Winds Harbor to start their new life together. The young married couple buys their dream house, encounters new adventures, and makes new friends. Barbara Caruso's entertaining narration brings listeners to Four Winds and makes them feel a part of this shoreline community.

    "Don't be put off by the sample's audio quality."

    I listened to the samples of all the different recordings of his book, and I liked this narrator best, but I almost didn't get it because the audio wasn't great. When I got it, however, the audio quality was great. Barbara Caruso does a great job.

    "A dreamy home for Anne"

    This was a delight -- the only drawback seemed to be the mispronunciation of several words; of particular annoyance was any reference to Gog & Magog, as the narrator kept pronouncing Magog as "Mā-gog" rather than "Mah-gog"... other than that distraction, was extremely pleased.

    "Good story, well narrated"
    Any additional comments?

    The narrator does a really good job on all of the characters.
    The story was better than "Anne of Windy Poplars" and as good as the more widely known first three books in the series.

    Story
    "Lots of descriptive narration with movement"

    I loved the younger Anne of the "Anne of Green Gables". I'm disappointed in the Anne of "Anne's House of Dreams". The book was rather boring. A lot of talk talk talk with no forward movement in the development of the story. I felt as if I was standing still staring into the faces of several characters who just whined and whined. Ugh.

    The narrator couldn't change her voice from person to person. I would sometimes not know who was doing the "talking" in the book. Most of all, I missed Gilbert who rarely "showed up" in this novel.

    "Delightful"

    Such a fun book to enjoy. The playful choice of words and a story that is enchanting. This is the 1st book I have listened to thru Audible & Alexa and it has been a treat. Barbara Caruso's voice brought it to life in such a tender way. She is a wonderful voice actor.

    "Delightful story of Anne's adulthood"

    I love the storyline and was looking forward to each new chapter. The narrator does a phenomenal job of changing voices and giving life to each character. Think she is one of the best narrators I listen to. The most memorable moment was that of Ann's first child passing away. And following it with passing on Captain Jim. Mirrors true life events with sadness followed by happiness. An excellent novel and looking forward to the next one in the series
