SummaryAdd a Summary
Fifteen-year-old Rilla Blythe is looking forward to what she calls "the best years of life." Instead, during those years she experiences the heartache of WWI. All three of her brothers must leave, as well as childhood friends, and Ken Ford, whom Rilla is strongly attached to. To top it off, she must become "mother" to a baby whose father is off at war, and whose mother has died. What will the outcome be?
Rilla Blythe, Anne and Gilbert Blythe's youngest daughter, is ready to experience life--or so she thinks. She wants a social life, pretty dresses, and--beaux! At almost fifteen, she thinks she's ready for adventure and romance.
Then WWI strikes. As Canada joins England in the 'Great War', Rilla's brothers and close male friends, including handsome Ken Ford, whom Rilla has a crush on, head to war. The four years Rilla wanted to spend in fun and flirting are spend in knitting socks, waiting anxiously for news of the war, and taking care of a little war-baby. Will Rilla accept the hard things in life as well as the smooth and grow into a lovely woman, despite the tragedy that threatens the Blythe home?
