Overview

Similar to her earlier and more famous Anne of Green Gables series, the Emily novels depicted life through the eyes of a young orphan girl, Emily Starr, who is raised by her relatives after her father dies of consumption. The series was less romanticized and more realistic than the Anne novels. Montgomery considered Emily to be a character much closer to her own personality than Anne, and some of the events which occur in the Emily series happened to Montgomery herself. Emily is described as having black hair, purply violet eyes, pale skin and a unique and enchanting "slow" smile.

Meet the Author

Lucy Maud Montgomery CBE, (always called "Maud" by family and
friends) and publicly known as L. M. Montgomery, (November 30,
1874–April 24, 1942) was a Canadian author, best known for a series
of novels beginning with Anne of Green Gables, published in 1908.
Once published, Anne of Green Gables was an immediate success. The
central character, Anne, an orphaned girl, made Montgomery famous
in her lifetime and gave her an international following. The first
novel was followed by a series of sequels with Anne as the central
character. The novels became the basis for the highly acclaimed
1985 CBC television miniseries, Anne of Green Gables and several
other television movies and programs, including Road to Avonlea,
which ran in Canada and the U.S. from 1990-1996. Source:

When I first started reading it I knew I would love it. I did. Emily is a wonderful girl! It has excitment, romance, and just enough ''Spice!'' L. M. Montgomery has done is again! I also recommend the whole Anne series!

The Emily of New Moon series were my favorite books as a little girl. I cannot wait until my daughter is old enough to read them herself. Emily is real, she is touching, and she is honest.

I grew up with the Anne of Green Gables books, but had never even considered looking into other works by L.M. Montgomery. I happend upon this book in a bookshop a year ago, and I was captivated! Emily is a very real girl, with real friends. Montgomery was a psychological geneous, as evidenced by her character development in all her books! I was encouraged by this book, because, like Emily, I love to write, and this spurred me on to that end. The four stars (as opposed to five) were because the story did drag a bit in the first couple of chapters.

I have always loved L.M. Montgomery's books. The Emily books are not my favorite that she has written (it is actually The Blue Castle and the Anne books), but they are still very good. It focuses on a heroine that is somewhat similar to Anne, but with a different twist. There are a total of three books in the Emily series. And I love the new look for the paperback! The artwork is beautiful. The only problem... now I want to update all of my collection of her books to match the new look. :D

This is the heart-rending story of a lonely orphan who learns to love, to live, to write. Emily Starr is an inspiring female character...don't miss out on her antics and idiosyncrasies! I would recommend this book to anyone in the world!

even thought i havent read much, i feel this is the best book i ever read. it is very revelant to our everyday lives as the characters are very down to earth. i really enjoyed reading this book and the other two following series. Emily indeed is a very likable character and her ambition to become a writer is ever more laudable.

i just finished this book less than 10 seconds ago. I watched Emily grow up, i was sad to finish. A really great book, I couldn't put it down!

Emily of New Moon is an excellent book. I, especially, can relate to Emily because I am an aspiring writer. Many of Emily's feelings and comments throughout the book ring quite true. The only thing I regretted about the novel was the countless number of times that something happened that could be labeled quite truthfully 'unfair.' While this is good in small amounts in any book, you should not put it down feeling as if the character has been beaten around the head a few too many times. All in all, however, I was pleased with Lucy Maude's extrodinary imagery. The descriptions of New Moon were, in my opinion, the high part of it all. While I would not recommend the other two Emily books, I think the first is a must-read for girls 9-14 who like historical fiction and poetry.
