Format: Paperback
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!

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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
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! =)

Like many teenage girls, I loved the "Anne" series, and read the first six repeatedly for several years. L. M. Montgomery knew just how to appeal to and inspire girls in this age group. I didn't realise "Rainbow Valley" or "Rilla of Ingleside" existed until I found copies of them in my school library in the late 1980s, and managed to read bits of them when I should have been studying - I never managed to read them all the way through as our strict librarian would come round and check on us! There were always books in the other six of the series that I liked more than others, though - for instance I never liked "Anne of Avonlea", "Anne of Windy Willows" or "Anne of Ingleside" so much as the other three - I felt that there was too much incidental gossip about unimportant characters in them. I'm now 38 and since I had wanted to read the other two books as a teenager, I recently ordered them and read them. I have to admit I skimmed "Rilla of Ingleside" (and "Rainbow Valley"), because these days I feel even more than I did then that L. M. Montgomery does write quite a lot of trivial village gossip - but on the other hand, I found the insights into Canadian families sending their sons, husbands and brothers off to fight in World War I extremely moving and well written. The descriptions of the anguish suffered by Rilla's family, as presumably being typical of so many families in Canada and in many other countries at that time, are sad and made me think how lucky I am not to have lived through such a traumatic period in history. I enjoyed the parts concerning Rilla's war baby, also.Read more ›
