Audible Editor Reviews

Many know of the young Anne of Green Gables. However, many fewer know that Montgomery continued Anne's saga through her adult years. This work, the final installment, concerns Anne and Gilber's youngest child, daughter Rilla. It is the summer of 1914, and Rilla is a typically frivolous adolescent girl of 15. However, as the war engulfs her world, she becomes a woman, who must embrace triumphs and tragedies. Barbara Caruso gives a winsome performance in keeping with the heroine. Caruso's voice is clear and her delivery soft. She performs each character with energy and great expression, affecting a separate voice for each.

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

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.
