Synopses & Reviews
The eighth novel in the Anne of Green Gables saga, Rilla of Ingleside focuses on Anne's youngest daughter, the fifteen-year-old Bertha Marilla Rilla Blythe.
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.
