Following her father’s death, the newly orphaned Emily Starr is quickly uprooted and sent to live with her aunts and cousins on Prince Edward Island. After an initial culture shock, Emily reevaluates the situation and attempts to make the most of her new surroundings. When Emily Starr’s father dies from tuberculosis, she moves to New Moon Farm to stay with relatives. It’s a jarring change of pace and scenery that pits Emily against her strict aunt Elizabeth and new classmates. Despite the circumstance, she forges friendships with local children: Teddy Kent, Ilse Burnley and Perry Miller. They each have distinct personalities and gifts that make Emily’s stay more enjoyable. Together, they engage in various adventures, while navigating their respective home lives. Following Anne of Green Gables, Emily of New Moon is the first entry in L.M. Montgomery’s novel series featuring Emily Starr. It offers a more authentic look at orphan life in early twentieth century Canada. Emily is a wonderful addition to Montgomery’s enduring legacy of vibrant female characters. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Emily of New Moon is both modern and readable. show more
