Anne’s children were almost grown up, except for pretty, high-spirited Rilla—whose bright hazel eyes and dazzling smile no one could resist.

Rilla, almost fifteen, can’t think any further ahead than going to her very first dance at the Four Winds Lighthouse and getting her first kiss from handsome Kenneth Ford. But undreamed-of challenges await the irrepressible Rilla when the world of Ingleside becomes endangered by a far-off war. 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 2/16/2014

    " This was my favorite out of the Anne series. I loved the way the stories of all the characters - some you have followed for 40 years of their lives or since they were babies - resolved by showing how they reacted to World War 1. Montgomery ended the series brilliantly and satisfactory. Such a great blend of comedy & tragedy, too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Randee | 2/15/2014

    " Not my favorite but out of respect for the author of Anne of Green Gables, I will never give less than a 3 to any book L.M. Montgomery wrote! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy | 2/2/2014

    " I will always love the Blythes and I am with them in my heart, but the rest of my convictions are with old Whiskers-on-the-Moon, that scorned and traitorous pacifist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 2/2/2014

    " I remember this being one of my favorites as a kid, but I had several problems with it as an adult. At least I'll always have Anne of Green Gables. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Whitney | 1/21/2014

    " My favorite of the whole series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 1/17/2014

    " I haven't read this since I was a young teenager, and had forgotten most of it. The story of a young girl forced to mature because of a war means much more to me now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissainau | 1/16/2014

    " I love the Anne books so much, and this is one of the best - perhaps the very best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 1/15/2014

    " One of my favorite authors. After a while, I was really waiting for the war to end (it takes up so much of the book). I still like it though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thalia | 1/9/2014

    " I started off this one unsure about it but it nearly ends up as a favourite save for the first couple in the series. Strange to have Anne as a secondary characters but Rilla becomes interesting and the social history of war time in Canada is fascinating "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison | 12/18/2013

    " Gives a great perspective on the Great War at home in Canada. This war really effected Montgomery and you can tell so in her writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taranah | 12/13/2013

    " If you've read the entire "Anne" series, I can promise you that you're going to cry your heart out reading this, but I still recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 12/6/2013

    " The final book in the Anne of Green Gables series, this book focuses on Rilla (Anne's youngest daughter). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alisa | 5/26/2013

    " This is one of my favorite books. I think a lot of people can't get past Anne of Windy Poplers. The books after that are fantastic. I love them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lanie | 3/5/2013

    " Well, it's a little bittersweet finishing off this series. I really loved them all, I loved getting immersed in Anne's life and all of her funny, quirky friends. Now I need to go watch the movies! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 11/27/2012

    " Loved this book but the ending was about 1 chapter too short. Much better story line than some of the others in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pratita Kusuma | 11/16/2012

    " smiling ear to ear... :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista | 10/7/2012

    " Probably the most interesting thing about this book was the historical backdrop (actually, more than a backdrop) of World War I and depiction of the emotional battle on the homefront. Not quite as smarmy as the Anne of Green Gables (earlier) books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cara | 8/24/2012

    " I love the crazy mini stories she throws into each book like Rilla taking on a war baby in this one. Montgomery also has some beautiful insight into God and life after death. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 abi rafon | 8/21/2012

    " One of the Best Books that I want to re-read and re-read someday and still get excited about it. A great book to end a wonderful series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angee | 5/18/2012

    " Loved it!! A story of romance, tragedy, and hope. I really enjoyed the last couple of chapters. I now can't wait for my trip to PEI this fall! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liya Mathew | 2/9/2012

    " Slow in beginning but better later on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 12/28/2011

    " Even though this is the last of the "Anne" books, it does not let the reader down... it describes life during WWI; a time period that is often over shadowed by WWII "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly Adamson | 10/15/2011

    " Such a sweet story about Anne's youngest child, I love it so much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melody | 7/6/2011

    " Probably my favorite series growing up as a girl- I think I identified with her many shenanigans! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 5/18/2011

    " I really enjoyed reading this book. It is the final book of the Anne of Green Gables series which I have loved reading. I last read the series several years ago and am planning on going back to the beginning now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pratita | 5/6/2011

    " smiling ear to ear... :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eliana | 5/3/2011

    " This book was so good! A perfect conclusion to the series. The only problem I have with it is that it leaves a few things hanging.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rayell | 4/17/2011

    " Least favorite of the bunch. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rapnouil | 4/15/2011

    " Apparently the ONLY book written by a woman about those left at home to cope during World War I... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sasha | 3/24/2011

    " I have to admit that it was a rather poor ending to the beloved Anne books that I love so much. I'd prefer the series if it ended with Rainbow Valley. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamee | 3/22/2011

    " Loved this book. I cried while reading it and cried when I finished it. I did NOT want this series to end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessa | 3/21/2011

    " I didn't like Rilla as well as Anne, but overall, perhaps my second or third favorite in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ereksonkate | 3/8/2011

    " Lovely book. More serious than I remembered, focusing on World War I. Montgomery really draws the reader in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracey | 3/8/2011

    " Anne's barely in this one, I'm guessing because L.M. Montgomery was heartily sick of her. I could have done without the lisp, but other than that, I loved it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Irina | 3/7/2011

    " This was definitely the heaviest book in the "Anne of Green Gables" series - if you can even call it a part of the series. It's very sad, and that damn Dog Monday had me in tears on every page on which he appeared. "

About the Author

Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on November 30th, 1874, in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, Canada. Although she lived during a time when few women received a higher education, Lucy attended Prince Wales College in Charlottestown, PEI, and then Dalhousie University in Halifax. At seventeen she went to Halifax, Nova Scotia, to write for a newspaper, the Halifax Chronicle, and for its evening edition, the Echo. But Lucy returned to live with her grandmother in Cavendish, PEI, where she taught and contributed stories to magazines. It was this experience, along with the lives of her farmer and fisherfolk neighbors, that came alive when she wrote her Anne books, beginning with Anne of Green Gables (1908). Anne of Green Gables brought her overnight success and international recognition. It was followed by eight other books about Anne and Avonlea, as well as a number of other delightful novels, including her Emily series, which began in 1923 with Emily of New Moon. But it is her delightful heroine Anne Shirley, praised by Mark Twain as “the most moving and delightful child of fiction since the immortal Alice,” who remains a popular favorite throughout the world. She and her husband, the Rev. Ewen MacDonald, eventually moved to Ontario. Lucy Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942.
