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.
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%!
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.
