Rilla of Ingleside

Rilla of Ingleside - L.M. Montgomery What a beautiful ending to a masterful, emotional series. Rilla of Ingleside was outstanding in so many ways.

The really incredible characteristic of this novel was the depiction of World War I and how those on the home-front living through those times experienced it.

The pain, the loss, the enduring hope, the victories were all so deeply touching and engagingly written. Of all the novels in Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables series, this last book was uniquely special. There was so much emotion, so many happenings. From Rilla and her war-baby, to the mixed fates of the Blythe and Meredith children and the loves that flourished and developed and succeeded, there was a lot in this book. I'm really very happy I took the time to read all eight books in this series. Rilla of Ingleside was in many ways a reward to the reader.
