As I continued to read the Anne series, I lost some of my interest. This book now starts to capture Anne's kids' perspective on things, so it's not completely Anne-based. It's a nice book though and I enjoyed reading it, (I'm a very picky reader by the way) and I think that Diana (Di) is one of my favorite characters in this. I recommend reading it.
"Anne of Ingleside is the sixth book in the Anne of Green Gables series, written by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Instead of the murmuring enchantment and mystery of the harbor and the seashore, Ingleside of Glen St. Mary is a large house, full of vivid chatter, fresh young minds, the largest rainbowy imaginations from the smallest children.
Surrounded by trees, valleys, animals, comrades, the Ingleside children grow up surrounded by dreams with their mother Anne and father Gilbert to guide them. The little adventures of each unique and lovable child—Jem, Walter, Nan, Di, Shirley, and Rilla, touches upon their yet undeveloped personalities, their childish beliefs and expectations of the world. Humor follows each urchin’s heartbreak or triumph; yet, always, there’s something sweet enough to bring tears in each little episode of Ingleside.
This novel, admittedly, takes place decades after Anne of Green Gables and many years after Anne’s House of Dreams; changes should be expected for the plot and characters. Yet, through both Anne and her children, Montgomery’s spirit and passion for dreams and imagination still lies fiery and young through the storyline.

I really likes this book, because it is fun to read ...
The title of this book should really be The Children And Housekeeper Of Ingleside. I have the same problem with the Anne books as I do with Margaret Atwood’s books: it seems I started with the best novel and they just get worse from there. They’re all enjoyable enough, but the Anne of Ingleside is nothing like the Anne of Green Gables: she barely says a single word in the entire book!
