I had listened to all of the Anne stories in order. This was a nice continuation of the story.
I especially liked the insight into the world war 1 conflict. since this was written so close to the time of the war, I can trust that the responses were true to what real people went through during that time.
She did a nice job of capturing the personalities in the story and adding to their interest.
L.M. Montgomery is second to none. Barbara Caruso is the very best narrator, I will buy a book just because she is reading.
L.M. Montgomery's "Rilla of Ingleside" was always one of my favorite books growing up, and it is just as delightful to rediscover it now. Barbara Caruso's voice is flexible and captures the different 'voices' in the novel very well. There is some serious (wartime) subject matter, and she carries this off very well in addition to the lighter, humorous material. This audiobook is a very enjoyable listen for any Anne fans.
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.
