Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.4 stars; 27 reviews)

Anne of Green Gables is all grown up and married, and this is the story of her daughter “Rilla”, named for the indomitable Marilla Cuthbert of Anne’s childhood. The young Rilla will need all her strength for the dark days ahead, as her coming of age will be in the midst of World War I. Her brothers and sweetheart will go to war, and not all of them will come back. Her sisters will become nurses, but Rilla herself is too young. What can she do back home to support the war effort? How can she be involved in doing good in her own backyard? What difference can one person’s ‘keeping the faith’ make in the titanic struggle of world events?

LM Montgomery, in this final installment of the Anne of Green Gables books, takes us through the terror, the suspense and the sacrifices of ‘The Great War’ as told through the eyes of Rilla. Of course, as in any girl’s diary, there are also chronicled the romances of Miranda, Gertrude, Mary and Rilla herself. At the same time, the small details of everyday life lighten the drama with humorous stories of the antics of the Ingleside cat, the putting on of a wedding with one day’s notice and ‘that prayer meeting’ which will forever go down in the local lore of little Glen St Mary! - Summary by Beth Thomas

Reviews

Don't like this version

(2 stars)

The way this dramatic reading it set up is very strange. It switches between the narrator and characters at times when it should just be the narrator reading. And I have to admit I don't care for the choice of readers. I really wish those who read the first four books would have continued through the series. I stopped listening to this after the third chapter and went back to Karen Savage's reading

like it but some parts are bad

(3.5 stars)

Like it but alters voice sounds like he's like really old just it doesn't fit right you could really seeing if you could see your mind
