It was a clear, apple-green evening in May, and Four Winds Harbour was mirroring back the clouds of the golden west between its softly dark shores. The sea moaned eerily on the sand-bar, sorrowful even in spring, but a sly, jovial wind came piping down the red harbour road along which Miss Cornelia's comfortable, matronly figure was making its way towards the village of Glen St. Mary. Miss Cornelia was rightfully Mrs. Marshall Elliott, and had been Mrs. Marshall Elliott for thirteen years, but even yet more people referred to her as Miss Cornelia than as Mrs. Elliott. The old name was dear to her old friends, only one of them contemp-tuously dropped it. Susan Baker, the gray and grim and faithful handmaiden of the Blythe family at Ingleside, never lost an opportunity of calling her "Mrs. Marshall Elliott," with the most killing and pointed emphasis, as if to say "You wanted to be Mrs. and Mrs. you shall be with a vengeance as far as I am concerned."

"Rainbow valley" is a wonderful book just to sit down on a quiet evening and read. It is mostly about Anne's children's adventures, with a little romance mixed in as well. I would recomend this book to people ages 9 and up. Read full review

This wasn't my favourite Green Gable book, I struggled to know where the book was going, & what the story line was, because it seemed to be a lot of short stories, rather than a novel. But as per usual, it had a happy ending, & that's what I like.
