A-Z Wednesday

A-Z Wednesday is hosted by Vicky of Reading at the Beach. To join, look here.

This weeks letter is: R

Rilla of Ingleside (Anne of Green Gables, No. 8)

Rilla of Ingleside (Anne of Green Gables, No. 8) by L.M. Montgomery

Book Description:
Anne's children were almost grown up, except for pretty, high-spirited Rilla. Rilla wasn't yet fifteen, and she was still looking forward to her first dance and her first kiss. But undreamed-of challenges awaited irrepressible Rilla when the happy world of Ingleside was endangered by a fearful far-off war. Rilla must join her courageous family in a dramatic struggle that would change her life and leave Rilla no longer a girl, but a proud woman.

My thoughts:
Rilla of Ingleside is the last book in the Anne of Green Gables series and one of my favorite in the series. A couple of years ago when I was re-reading the series, I realized how World War I affected those who were involved in all the years of the war. This is a more of a serious story compared to the other books, the story of Rilla is not a disappointment and is a very satisfactory ending to the saga of Anne.


  1. I've never read any of the Anne of Green Gables books. Didn't realize they went all the way to the WWI era. This one sounds like a great read.
    Here's my "R" book.

  2. Sounds good

    Here's my R for this week

  3. Oh, this is one I missed along the way! I loved Anne of Green Gables.

    Here's mine:

  4. Sounds like a great read!

    My `R` is up:

  5. Hi!
    I've read Anne of Green Gables but not the follow up books. I'll have to check into those. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  6. And here I had thought I read all of the Anne of Green Gables books. I now know I was wrong!

  7. I love this series. One of these days I'll re-read it.

  8. I love the Anne books- and am glad I didn't discover them until I was an adult. I think I enjoyed them so much more that way. I hope to re-read them someday.
    My R book is up--(a bit late)
