A great book and a wonderful read. This was a very different book then the preceeding 7 in the series. While the others are sweet, likeable life stories, this one offers many pure and moving accounts of a period of history not often talked about. I enjoyed it as a close to the series, though even as a stand-alone story, it would still be moving. Very very good.

Touching book, beautifully read

Touching book, beautifully read! I find this story inspiring, and it gives me a glimpse into a time that is so unfamiliar to me.

War never changes

The book made me laugh out loud and cry my eyes out. It reminded me of after 911. Everyone in my small town just about felt they had to join the military because it to them was their duty to defend their country. It reminded me of my two older cuisines that served and several of their class mates that followed right after high school. Our small town pulled together and it greatly impacted us and our families, all those memories of those early days and years of the war just came back to me. Our community and ones around it pulled together to send care baskets and honored our soldiers. Thankfully my cousins came home after several tours though they have lost comrades.

This is one of Lucy Maud Montgomery more serious books. It's focuses more on Anne's youngest daughter Rilla. Although many of the old characters are in this book including Anne and Gilbert. although I enjoyed this story and a big thank you to all the readers, I did miss the comical side of Anne's nature and the funny things that she got up to in her older books. Also I wonder If people were harder in those times when L M Montgomery wrote, the treatment to the cats in her stories are rather unpleasant, being a cat lover I felt a little put off off.

poignant and sweet

So funny and touching at the same time! Karen Savage is such an incredibly amazing reader and does all the flawless voices! This story is about a young Canadian girl's teens during World War One and the love and heartbreak she encounters. Also, it is so wonderful to get a glimpse of Anne and Gilbert when they are older. All in all, it was throughly good book.

pretty and touching


(4.5 stars)

Some parts were kinda comical, like the first two or three chapters and scattered around the rest. I almost felt like crying when Walter died, and I laughed so hard when Norman Douglas and Mr. Pryor faced off during prayer meeting!! Karen did a great job and I loved it. Thanks so much
