Back Cover Text
Rilla, the charming and carefree daughter of Anne, (once of Green Gables), reaches her teenage years during the World War One era. This is the lively tale of her growing maturity in that historic time of world conflict, with its intense “home front” effort, its spirit of courage and optimism. Through her, we glimpse the way in which the people of that bygone day lived, in this touching and absorbing story.
Lucy Maud Montgomery’s fascinating accounts of the lives and romances of Anne, Emily, and other well-loved characters have achieved long-lasting popularity the world over. Born in 1874 in Prince Edward Island, Lucy Maud showed an early flair for story-telling. She soon began to have her writing published in papers and magazines, and when she died in Toronto in 1942 she had written more than twenty novels and a large number of short stories. Most of her books are set in Prince Edward Island, which she loved very much and wrote of most beautifully. Anne of Green Gables, her most popular work, has been translated into thirty-six languages, made into a film twice, and has had continuing success as a stage play. Lucy Maud Montgomery’s early home at Cavendish, P.E.I., where she is buried, is a much-visited historic site.
