"L.M. Montgomery's Rilla of Ingleside is a different and more personal take on World War I. The imagery and writing style have a beautiful, old-fashioned tone to them that we rarely see nowadays. I would recommend reading the other eight books in the Anne of Green Gables series first to get more or a perspective, but it can be read as a stand alone as well."
