Rilla Blythe, youngest daughter of Anne, is almost 15 in 1914. As her brothers and friends prepare to go off to battle, the irrepressible Rilla realizes that she will be changed forever and the world will never be the same.

Delightful Rendition

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.

Best book Iv'e heard

I loved this book I've listened to it at least 10 times. I can nearly say it word for word. I think the narrator really understands the people in the book

I wish this series had not ended. It was such a pleasant break from the chaos happening in the United States.

If you’re tired of the chaos and vitriol that’s taking place in the United States, this is the book for you. Starting with Anna Green Gable‘s, each book successively brought you into the world of Green Gable and lifted my heart.

Beloved classic, brought to life by the narrator

This is one of my all time favorite books, however, I had never listened to it. This narrator brought each character to life in a way that deepened the story and made it shine anew. Well worth your time!

A faithful take on a childhood classic

Old books can often simply feel dated. While this one isn't entirely exempt, it is also singularly charming and life affirming in a way that one rarely encounters anymore. Earnest and heart-warming without becoming saccharine.

Rilla of Ingleside

I have read this book a few times starting in my teen years. This is the first time I have listened to it. Barbara Caruso is FABULOUS! Her emotions and different voices are spot on. It made the book better than reading it myself. So enjoyable!

This story is touching, funny and not just for children! Love it and recommend it.

Excellent reader to an excellent book

I really enjoyed this reader. She reads with real emotion and makes all the characters so distinct. An excellent way to spend 11 hours. You will laugh and sob in equal measure.
