Publisher's Summary

Rilla is full of high-spirits just like her mother. But undreamed-of challenges await the irrepressible girl when the world of Ingleside becomes endangered by a far-off war, which carries off her brothers and many of the local young men to fight overseas. 

The eighth of nine books in the Anne Shirley series, Rilla of Ingleside was published in 1921 and was the sixth book to feature the beloved protagonist from Anne of Green Gables. Notable for being the only Canadian novel about WWI written from a woman's perspective, it is also unique in that it mentions the Gallipoli campaign and the terrible sacrifices made by Australian and New Zealand forces.

Perfect narration and a perfectly heart wrenching story!

This story has so many lovely, tragic, soul-searing moments. My heart is both broken and full.

Perfectly understated performance.

I loved this version of Rilla. I've found so many readings of the Anne books over-dramatic to the point of caricature. This one was very simply read with just the right emotion. Thank you!
