Emily Starr never knew what it was to be lonely -- until her beloved father died. Now Emily's an orphan, and her mother's snobbish relatives are taking her to live with them at New Moon Farm. She's sure she won't be happy Emily deals with stiff, stern Aunt Elizabeth and her malicious classmates by holding her head high and using her quick wit. Things begin to change when she makes friends: with Teddy, who does marvelous drawings; with Perry, who's sailed all over the world with his father yet has never been to school; and above all, with Use, a tomboy with a blazing temper. Amazingly, Emily finds New Moon beautiful and fascinating. With new friends and adventures, Emily might someday think of herself as Emily of New Moon.

    I am in the process of reading L. M. Montgomery's Emily of New Moon. Emily's sweet father just died, leaving her to the mercy of her mother's family, the Murrays. Emily, shocked and heartbroken, wants nothing but to be with her father again. But instead she is taken into Aunt Laura (the sweet one) and Aunt Elizabeth's (The stern, no-nonsense, plain, sensible one) home on New Moon. Emily slowly warms up to her new environment, and discovers the pain and joy in having friends. I love this book because Montgomery is such a beautiful writer, the very one who wrote Anne of Green Gables. Her writing flows like a river! I hope you liked this book as much as I do.
