Her brothers go off to fight, and Rilla brings home an orphaned newborn in a soup tureen. She is swept into a drama that tests her courage and leaves her changed forever.

Fifteen-year-old Rilla, the daughter of Anne Shirley Blythe, grows from a carefree, irresponsible girl into a strong and capable young woman during the war years, 1914-1918.

Meet the Author

Lucy Maud Montgomery OBE (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.

Montgomery's work, diaries and letters have been read and studied by scholars and readers worldwide.
Lucy Maud Montgomery was born in Clifton (now New London), Prince Edward Island on November 30, 1874. Her mother, Clara Woolner Macneill Montgomery, died of tuberculosis when Lucy was 21 months old. Stricken with grief over his wife's death, Hugh John Montgomery gave custody over to Montgomery's maternal grandparents. Later he moved to Prince Albert, North-West Territories when Montgomery was seven years old. She went to live with her maternal grandparents, Alexander Marquis Macneill and Lucy Woolner Macneill, in the nearby community of Cavendish and was raised by them in a strict and unforgiving manner. Montgomery's early life in Cavendish was very lonely. Despite having relations nearby, much of her childhood was spent alone. Montgomery credits this time of her life, in which she created many imaginary friends and worlds to cope with her loneliness, as what developed her creative mind.

Montgomery completed her early education in Cavendish with the exception of one year (1890-1891) during which she was at Prince Albert with her father and her step-mother, Mary Ann McRae. In November 1890, while at Prince Albert, Montgomery had her first work published in the Charlottetown paper The Daily Patriot; a poem entitled "On Cape LeForce". She was as excited about this as she was about her return to her beloved Prince Edward Island in 1891. The return to Cavendish was a great relief to her. Her time in Prince Albert was unhappy due to the fact that Montgomery and McRae did not get along and because by, "... Maud's account, her father's marriage was not a happy one."

    Answer to December 29

    The answer to ur question is that people during WW1 didnt have much technology, and that instead they did more productive things to EARN the things they got. Also, the IPad 5 was never invented back then. I would recommend that you investigated what Social Studies knowledge you have and pick up the books. You may be surprised at what you find! :)

    dramatic conclusion...

    Rilla of Ingleside is the dramatic conclusion of the Anne of Green Gables series. It takes place during World War I and we see how the war affects the Blythe family in sometimes tragic ways. This book was very emotional at times and brought me near to tears on a couple of occasions. Rilla of Ingleside is a great ending to a great series, one I'll be sure to enjoy again sometime in the future.

    PERSON WHO SAID SO LAST SEASON

    So she doesnt have that stuff. Big deal!!!!! This is a beautiful and heroic story. Of course it takes someone who is smart and has a brain not to mention character. Grow up. Not everyone needs to have that stuff.

    Answer to december l29, 2012

    The time setting of this book is during the nineteen twenties, during World War ll. Do you honestly think that they had ipads and all the other electronics that nearly every teenager has today in america? Not even I have any electronic devices except my nook and I most definetely do not have a pair of animal print skinny jeans. Sometimes I wonder if people like you are crazy. I mean honestly, do people really NEED wiis and iphones? I thought that this was a great book!

    Perfect for teenage gals

    This is my favorite anne book because i can pretty much relate to everything rilla goes through. It is a perfectly beautiful work. Montgomery is famous for writing about simple beautiful things and here she uses her gift to write about something big and horrible and it is amazing. So much better than the junk us teens are expected to read nowadays!!!!!

    Awesome Book!!!!! Wish she would write more!!!!!

    I love this book!!! It's like the best one in the series!!! It is really good it shows her growing up and maturing it's also really sad at some parts and that makes it even better!! I've read and re-read this book like a million times!!! I love how she hates babies and then has to take care of one all by herself, but she eventually comes to love them. I think everyone should read this book it's atouching story about coming of age. I think it's the best book in the Anne Series. I love it!!!!!!!!!

    JA for ZE

    My fascination with this book began with my crush on Ken Ford, but it quickly changed into something deeper. The beginning, starts out rather slow, I thought. I believe it picks up when Rilla (Anne's youngest daughter) finds a little war baby (I love that chapter!) And in this way, the books (through diary enteries, dialogue and action scenes) show how ww one made a mature woman of Anne's rather spoiled daughter. She becomes strog, a brick for her mother, a help to Susan, a sweetheart to Ken, and a mother for little Jims.

    The part where she wastes money on a hat and makes a bow to her mom. Seeing her first silent picture with her mom! I love it all!

    Sixteen times I've read this book and I think after writing this review I need to read it again!!

    Answer to "just a question"

    No. Anne does not die in this book. It focuses on her youngest child Rilla and does not say much about Anne and her journey ahead in the ending.

    Great Book

    This book is such a great book. I love the way it wraps the series up. I highly reccomend the whole series. I have read many books and series, and without a doubt in my mind this is and will most likely always be the best series I've read. Imbelished with romance and topped with drama, I encourage you to buy this book.

    Love it

    This book is amazing. In the beginning Rilla is sort of self centered but she changes so much in the end. This book is a tearjerker in many ways.

    Great Book!

    This book is definitely different from the other books in the Anne of Green Gables series. While Anne is still a character, this book focuses heavily on her youngest daughter Rilla. The coming-of-age story could have been redundant given the previous books focused on Anne's growing up. However Rilla comes of age in a much different manner and environment. This book is set during WWI and gives a great view of what life was like for those at home watching the events in Europe. Rilla certainly isn't idle and finds herself head of the Junior Red Cross and raising a war orphan. It's a much darker story than the others, but is a very great read.

    I Also Recommend:

    WOW!!!!

    It is about Anne Shirly's children and how they grew up. Rilla is finding herself when there is a war going on and her brothers go to war and one of her brothers die in the war and the guy she loves leave but before he leaves he goes to talk to her and when they are alone tje baby she is looking after starts to cry so after awhile she brings him down and when she is calming him ,Ken the guy she likes, relizes that he loves her and when he has leave he kisses her and then makes her promise hin that she won't kiss anyone intill he gets backand she promises. When he gets back it takes him two weeks till he goes to see her and when he does he loves her more then he thought he could and realized that she is the girl for him. Thought that there should have been anouther but it was really good!!

    My FAVORITE book I have ever read (or re-read)!!!!

    This book is my favorite book I have ever read, and is by far the best in the Anne series or any other of L. M. Montgomery. My book is literally falling apart. I have read it so many times I have lost count. It is like comfort food. I turn to it whenever I am feeling down. I cried and laughed and laughed and cried. The historical angle is also very interesting. You don't hear much about WWI and even less about the Canadians during WWI. If you have never read this book, buy it right now, and set aside a day to read it, because you're not going to put it down.
