Book Description

21 Mar 2011 Anne of Green Gables (Book 8)
Anne's children were almost grown up, except for  pretty, high-spirited Rilla. No one could resist  her bright hazel eyes and dazzling smile. Rilla,  almost fifteen, can't think any further ahead than  going to her very first dance at the Four Winds  lighthouse and getting her first kiss from  handsome

Kenneth Ford. But undreamed-of challenges  await the irrepressible Rilla when the world of  Ingleside becomes endangered by a far-off war. Her  brothers go off to fight, and Rilla brings home an  orphaned newborn in a soup tureen. She is swept into  a drama that tests her courage and leaves her changed forever.

About the Author

Lucy Maud Montgomery (November 30, 1874 – April 24, 1942), called "Maud" by family and friends and publicly known as L. M. Montgomery, was a Canadian author best known for a series of novels beginning with Anne of Green Gables, published in 1908. Anne of Green Gables was an immediate success. The central character, Anne, an orphaned girl, made Montgomery famous in her lifetime and gave her an international following. The first novel was followed by a series of sequels with Anne as the central character. Montgomery went on to publish 20 novels as well as 530 short stories, 500 poems, and 30 essays. Most of the novels were set on Prince Edward Island, Canada, and places in the Canadian province became literary landmarks. She was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1935. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is L.M Montgomery's most touching book 18 May 2002
By A Customer
Rilla of Ingleside continues the adventures of Anne's children, the youngest, Rilla is left at home whilst her brothers go to fight in WW1. The book is sensitive and moving, portraying the feelings of the young girl and her family left behind in Prince Edward Island. If you liked the other "Anne" books then this one is a must, although it is much more sombre than the others, I believe that it is the best, and you won't want to put it down!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the serie 19 Oct 2003
Rilla of Ingleside is my favorite of the Anne of Green Gables serie. Although I can't really say it belongs to the serie. It's different, mainly because the main caracter, Rilla, is so different from her mother, Anne Shirley and because the subject is far more realistic then the other books who seem to belong to another world, that is why I consider Rilla of Ingleside to be at the same time the best of the serie and also apart from it. It shows how hard it was for women to stay home while their husband, sweetheart, son or brother were fighting.
I recommend this book, not only to fans of Anne Shirley but also to anybody who wants to cry, laugh and smile.

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
It is certainly hard to begin reading "Rilla of Ingleside," knowing it is the eighth and final book in the Anne of Green Gables series. The focus is on Rilla, born Bertha Marilla Blythe, the youngest of Anne's daughters, who is named for Anne Shirley's mother and the woman who took her in at Green Gables as a redheaded orphan. As the novel begins Rilla is fifteen years old and still looking forward to her first romance. But the novel takes a dramatic turn as the shadow of the First World War reaches all the way to Ingleside and sends a grief stricken Mrs. Blythe to her bed, but also a wonderful moment when Rilla sees her mother with eyes shinning and looking like a young girl.
American involvement in that war was relatively brief, compared to what was happening with the rest of the world, so what I found fascinating is to see that war from the Canadian perspective, as it drags on year after year. "Rilla of Ingleside" was published in 1921, which means that L. M. Montgomery provided a contemporaneous account of the war as seen from the Canadian home front. Two of Anne's children, Jem and Walter, as well as Rilla's beau Kenneth Ford, head off to France, where they suffer as all young men suffer in wars. But we learn of all this second-hand as we see the impact of the war on the mothers, sisters and girls who were left behind to worry about Paris being shelled by the Germans along with the fate of the Empire and their loved ones.
This gives "Rilla of Ingleside" an emotional depth unmatched in Montgomery's work by virtue of the fact we are talking about life and death in a world at war.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book; I couldn't put it down! 28 Dec 1998
By A Customer
I had read the first seven books of the Anne of Green Gables series. The fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh books were gradually getting more and more boring, but I decided to read on. Rilla of Ingleside is by far the best of the series. I rarely feel emotion over books, but this one positively sent chills up my spine-especially the chapter entitled "And So, Goodnight". This book was happy, sad, joyful, and tragic all at once. In this book, the author describes Kenneth Ford's love letters to Rilla as "never growing flat or insipid with ever so many scores of readings". That's how I'd describe this book. This is a must-read, especially for girls about to undergo the change from child to woman. Happy reading! =)

5.0 out of 5 stars READ THIS BOOK!!! 8 Dec 2001
By A Customer
I think that this book is one of the best in the Anne series coming a close second to Anne of the Island. It has everything a good book needs - strong believeable characters, tragedy and a little romance. But the best thing about this book is that you'll never be the same after reading it. It makes you question yourself as to whether you would be strong enough to cope with the consequences of war as well as Rilla, Anne and Susan did.

I have always enjoyed reading the Anne of Green Gables books.I first discovered them as a child of ten,in the school library.Rilla of Ingleside is no doubt my favourite.I am nearly 28 now and this book has grown with me.My heart still feels for the Blythes and Merediths as their menfolk leave for war,I am still heartbroken when Walter dies,and still admire Rilla,adopting her war baby whilst still only a child herself.I can picture Susan chasing off old Whiskers on the moon and playing gooseberry when Ken Ford calls to see Rilla.If i had a daughter i would hope that she would read this book,and the others before it.This is a wonderful book to close the Anne series with,and definitely the most grown up!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book in the world!!!!!!!!!!!! 13 Feb 2008
This story is so wonderful! The best book I have read, infact I got told off in class for reading it and not one of the books from the class bookcase!

Anne's three sons go off to fight in WW1, one of them never to come back.Though I love all the Anne books I think Anne's childhood was a bit to fairytale like. This is totaly different. Rilla seems so real to me.

I think everybody should read this book, it describes WW1 so well. A must for all Anne fans.
