[Series Introduction]

Adapted from Lucy Maud Montgomery's bestselling novels, Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea, and Anne of the Island, our three Anne series follow the adventures of a spirited young orphan as she grows up. Red-headed Anne has a cheerful disposition--and a knack for getting into trouble!

[Subtitle]

Since her first unexpected visit in February, Anne had become a regular visitor to Miss Lavender's. One morning, Anne realized it had been two weeks since her last visit, so she set off through the woods to Miss Lavender's house.
When she arrived, Miss Lavender was wearing a deep red dress with a grey shawl. Anne said merrily, "You look like the queen of the fairies!" Miss Lavender smiled warmly.
Anne and Miss Lavender enjoyed a delicious meal and then sat by the fire. "I'm glad you're here, Anne. Did anyone ever tell you anything about Stephen Irving and me?"
"Yes," said Anne truthfully, "I heard you and he were engaged once."
"So we were . . . 25 years ago . . . a lifetime ago. We were supposed to get married the next spring," Miss Lavender continued.
"I even had my wedding dress made, although nobody but my mother and Stephen ever knew that.”
"What went wrong?" asked Anne.
"We had just a stupid, silly, ordinary quarrel. So ordinary, I don't even remember how it began. I was vain and liked to tease him a little. He was a very high-strung, sensitive fellow," Miss Lavender said. "After the fight, Stephen tried to talk to me, but I wouldn't listen or forgive him. I sulked instead, and he went away for good. Sulking never solves anything, Anne."
"My heart broke when I realized that Stephen Irving was not coming back. But, Anne, a broken heart in real life isn't half as dreadful as it is in books. It's more like a toothache!" Miss Lavender smiled. "I'm really a happy person in spite of my broken heart."
After a little silence, Miss Lavender said, "It gave me a shock to hear about Stephen's son that first day you were here, Anne. What sort of boy is he?"
"Paul Irving is the dearest, sweetest child I ever knew, and he pretends things too, like you and me," Anne replied.
"I'd like to see him," said Miss Lavender softly, as if talking to herself, "though it might be too painful if he looked too much like Stephen . . . or if he didn't look enough like him. Anne, please bring him here in a month."
A month later, Anne and Paul walked through the woods to the stone house. They met Miss Lavender in the lane. "So this is Stephen's boy," she said, looking at Paul. "He . . . he is very like his father."
"Everyone says I'm a chip off the old block!" said Paul confidently. Miss Lavender smiled and quickly put aside her feelings of sadness over her old romance.
For the rest of the afternoon, Miss Lavender entertained Paul as if he were anybody's son, and they all had a very enjoyable afternoon together. As Anne walked Paul home, Paul announced, "I like Miss Lavender! And I like her house too!" Over the next few months, Paul visited Miss Lavender several times, and they became friends.
It was spring, and Anne was walking down the main road of Avonlea. She saw a small boy and a man walking toward her. The small boy ran up; it was Paul Irving. "Oh, Miss Shirley," Paul said excitedly, "guess who's here? Father is here! Father look, this is my beautiful teacher, Miss Shirley."
Stephen Irving came forward to meet Anne with a smile. He was a tall, older, handsome man. "Paul wrote about you in his letters," said Mr. Irving with a hearty handshake. "Miss Shirley, I want to thank you for being Paul's teacher and friend. And in Paul's last letter he mentioned visiting an old . . . friend of mine. Do you know Miss Lewis well?" Mr. Irving asked quietly.
