Rilla of Ingleside (Giveaway)


Admittedly, Rilla of Ingleside seems like an odd title (at least to me!) to be giving away. Why? Because it's considered book 8 of the Anne series and I have a hard time giving away only one book from a series (which is not the first title).

That said, Rilla of Ingleside is a stand alone title in a few respects.

#1 - It tells the story of Anne's daughter, Rilla. Although Anne and family make their appearance, the primary character of interest is Rilla and the story is told entirely from her her point of view.

#2 - It is of historical note in that it the story helps to explain what life was like for Canadian women on the home front during World War I. This book been assigned as part of college reading requirements for its historic relevance.

If you haven't read it, or if you don't own a copy and would like to, I highly encourage you to make things right. ;) I'll make it easy for you to do so by offering a copy to one of you.

Care to win?

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THE WINNER, as selected by Random.org., IS #3 - Tina. Congratulations!

Awww! I LOVE Rilla! I own a copy of it, but it made me so happy to see an LMM title pop up in my reader feed that I had to stop over and say hi, anyway.

Oh how I would love to own that precious title!! And, it would be even more precious coming from you, Carrie, instead of Amazon or a used bookstore (which I would not mind browsing around anyway!!) :)

Well, I can't pass up an Anne book give-away because at some point, I'll need to bequeath a complete set to my daughter while keeping one for myself. ( :

I've become interested in reading more about World War I from the woman's point of view. I know so much more about World War II. I read Rilla years ago as a library book.
