of the Island (1915) Anne goes to college for four years in Kingsport
(Halifax), Nova Scotia, living with other girls in a rented house in a wealthy
neighborhood close to a seaside park. The story deals with Anne's and the
other girls' ambitions and romances and ends with Anne's revelation about
her feelings for Gilbert Blythe. The end of the novel was written after
the First World War had begun and Montgomery's second son had been still
born. This was the last novel to be published by the Page Company. Montgomery
turned to Stokes in New York and to Canadian John McClelland as her agent.
Is there a hint of exasperation behind the dedication: "To all the girls
all over the world who have 'wanted more' about Anne"?
