A reader's review

Once in a blue moon I receive a note from a reader asking me to review something for this column, or hoping to share a book they have loved. One such note came from Rosamund Hyde of Tamworth. She sent a lovely little write-up about Rilla of Ingleside by LM Montgomery, a book she describes as “a hidden treasure within a well-known body of work.” She gave me permission to share her review here.
