Now in her twenties, Anne returns to Avonlea for the first time since Marilla Cuthbert's death. Gilbert has been offered a position in a hospital in New York, and he persuades Anne to come with him. He arranges a position for her at a large publishing house. Big city life isn't what they expected. Anne's manuscript is stolen by a dashing American writer, Jack Garrison. Thus the stage is set for a final three hour installment in the "Anne of Green Gables" story which follows the characters from New York, the war effort in Europe and eventually returns them to the red earth of Prince Edward Island.
A big disappointment

This is the third 'Anne Of Green Gables' TV mini-series written and produced by Kevin Sullivan. While it has the same characters and players (Megan Follows as Anne yet again) it is not based on LM Montgomery's books but a story written by Sullivan that takes Anne and hubby Gilbert Blythe off to World War I.
The film follows Anne and Gilbert to New York where Gil works as a doctor at a prestigious hospital (but doesn't like the politics and emphasis on rich patients) and budding author Anne get a job with a publisher (and is cheated out of her first 'proper' book). Gil is pressured into joining up, and after her letters are returned and Gil goes missing in action, Anne follows him to the front as a Red Cross auxiliary nurse. After some silly and unrealistic adventures, all live happily ever after back on Prince Edward Island.
It isn't a patch on the first two Sullivan adaptations and is a big disappointment. The story is poor, the acting is wooden, and the location scenes (New York, London, France, Germany) all look very Canadian to me. I can only give it 2/5 stars.
