Product Description

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.

"Rilla of Ingleside" is one of L. M. Montgomery's most moving books. It describes the activities of Gilbert and Anne (nee Shirley) Blythe and their family and friends during the First World War, from the point of view of Rilla, Anne's youngest daughter. Rilla is almost 15 when the book begins, and her parents worry because she seems so irresponsible. Rilla is at a dance when news of the declaration of War on August 4th, 1914, comes through. During that evening she has a dance with Kenneth Ford, who she cares about and who she hopes cares about her - he calls her "Rilla-my-Rilla". The War comes and Rilla's oldest brother Jem is old enough to volunteer - and does so. During the course of the book Rilla's other brothers, Walter, the intense, poetic one; and Shirley join up - and so does Kenneth Ford. Kenneth kisses her before leaving, and gets her to promise that she will not kiss anyone else before he returns. Meanwhile Jems faithful dog waits at the railway station awaiting Jem's return and won't leave it.
Rilla becomes more and more responsible. She organises the local Junior Red Cross; and adopts a baby who's mother has just died and whose husband is at war, leaving no-one to care for the baby! Rilla brings the baby home in a soup tureen, and looks after him. Meanwhile the war drags on, bringing more and more devastation. The news from the front is sometimes bad. Will any of the boys there survive? Then the war ends. Two of Gilbert and Anne's boys come home - one has been killed. Has Kenneth survived? Will he come back to "Rilla-my- Rilla"?
This really is an intensively moving book. There is much, much more that I have not mentioned. It is valuable, not only for its account of the Blythe family and how the First World War impacted on them, and how an appealing girl, Rilla, changes and develops; but also of its description of the ways the First World War effected the people of Canada.

Rilla of Ingleside is the final book in Lucy Maude Montgomery's collection of books about Anne Shirley, the red haired orphan girl we first met in Anne of Green Gables. This book focuses on Rilla, the youngest of Anne's children and is set against the back drop of the First World War.

As a young teenager I absolutely adored the 'Anne books' and read all of them several times over. Anne of Green Gables remains my favourite childhood novel and although I now read mostly on my Kindle, I purchased the paperback to complete my collection of Anne books! Reading it again was simply lovely! And I freely admit that my 5* rating is based on the happy nostalgia this book conjures for me. And I stand by it 100%!

This is chronologically the last of the ANNE books. ( people often don't realise that two others which fill in gaps in the story were written many years later).
It is set during the First World War and tells the story of Anne's youngest child growing from an indulged baby of the family to a woman - a rites of passage novel.
It is not perfect; there are errors about dates, and I longed for Susan to take a vow of silence for a chapter or two.
It is the only book of the series that I read again and again, first when I was 16 and still now I am 74.

I was dubious of reading this but am glad I did. It is all about the children going off to fight in the first world war. If you have read the previous books you become as concerned as the family as to how they are fairing on the front line. For anyone interested in the first world war it does give a fairly good account of how the war was viewed at the time.

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 ›
