'They belonged to each other; and, no matter what life might hold for them, it could never alter that. Their happiness was in each other's keeping and both were unafraid'

There has never been a wedding at Green Gables - that is, until now. In the old orchard, on a perfect sunny day, surrounded by their dearest friends, Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe are married at last.

The couple begin their new life together far from Avonlea, at Four Winds Harbour, where Gilbert has found the perfect home - a little white house on the shore, overlooking the sea. Before long, they have made new friends: Captain Jim, the lighthouse keeper; indomitable Miss Cornelia Bryant, who always speaks her mind; the writer Owen Ford; and beautiful Leslie Moore, whose sad life has led her to bitterness. When Anne and Gilbert face their own tragedy, they will need all their courage, and the support of their friends, to help them through.

The seventh book in the Anne Shirley series.'There was a little unfailing spring, always icy cold and crystal pure, in a certain birch-screened hollow of Rainbow Valley in the lower corner near the marsh. Not a great many people knew of its existence. The manse and Ingleside children knew, of course . . .'When the new minister, Reverend John Meredith, arrives at the manse, the village is scandalised by his children's behaviour. He is the best preacher they've ever had, but since his wife died the youngsters have run wild. Anne recognises their kindness, though, and before long the four young Merediths are firm friends with her own six children at Ingleside - and up to all sorts of schemes. They meet at a private hideout - a hollow they call Rainbow Valley - and their adventures range from boisterous escapades to saving the life of a young orphan.A collection that will be coveted by children and adults alike, this list is the best in children's literature, curated by Virago.

FBI agents pay a surprise visit to a Communist man and his wife in their New York apartment, and after a trial that divides the country, the couple are sent to the electric chair for treason.
