This is one of the best books in this series. It deals with the war (WWI), the sons who went away to fight, and the women (families) left behind in waiting. It's more of a Canadian point of view on the war and their involvement in it for 4 years ... which is different than the US entering toward the end of the war. It covers a war-baby, as well as a war-bride. This book in the series develops the character Rilla (named after Anne's adopted mother). She's Anne and Gilbert's youngest child (the baby), but here character matures beautifully from age 15-19, during the war years. The ending is extremely touching when the boys return home.

This is the last book in the Anne of Green Gables series, and focuses on Anne's daughter, Rilla, during World War I. If you're an Anne of Green Gables fan, you'll love this book.

Anne's children were almost grown up, except for pretty, high-spirited Rilla. No one could resist her bright hazel eyes and dazzling smile. 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.

Next to the 1st book in the series, this is one my favorite books in the set. It focuses on Rilla (named after Marilla) who is the youngest child of Anne & Gilbert. I especially like the little comments referring back to past events that occurred throughout the years and books. =) It's well written, very emotional, and a must read!
