I liked the stories and even the baseball essay even though I'm not a baseball fall. The reader of "Umney's Last Stand" was spot on while the one for "Rainy Season" sounds like she's on helium.
An absolutely wonderful, touching story. The characters and emotions are terribly real and you are completely drawn into their world. David Tennant reads beautifully, more subdued than for other books, embodying the heartbreak and joy in this family's life.
This used to be one of my favourite entires in the Anne of Green Gables series. I still enjoyed the story of young Rilla Blythe growing up during World War 1, although some of the pro-war sentiments now bother me. However I found that the narrator's vocal affectations and mannerisms sometimes got in the way, calling attention to themselves and, thus, detracting from the story.
