As Anne's friends get married and move away in the third book in the Anne of Green Gables series, Anne too leaves Prince Edward Island for Redmond College in Kingsport. Though Priscilla Grant and Gilbert Blythe are fellow-students, she at first feels lonely and provincial. But Anne soon makes new friends wherever she goes, one of whom is rich, handsome Roy Gardener, whose attentions to Anne make Gilbert very jealous. As Anne's dreams of romance turn into horrible scrapes, with more than one horrible proposal, she loses hope of marrying her true love, just as she discovers who it is.
