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:

    Loved this as a little girl

    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.

    A reviewer

    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.

    a book worthy of its audience

    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.

    Emily Takes All!

    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!

    A book full of wit and vivid imagery

    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.

    Very slow moving plot

    The Emily storys are boring in some parts but they have a good plot and Montgomery uses greta techniques to make this book seem as if it is in its time period. Very historicaly correct, but needs some help. descrptions get very detailed and slows down the plot. This novel is full of unneeded words. If when quicker, i might have been able to get through the book enjoyably in a day but it has taken me 2 weeks to finish it. The book has good potntial and a good plot. I recommend it to read but it definatly isn't the best. i wish i could give it moe stars, but i truely can't.

    Emily of New Moon Enchanting

    While reading Emily of New Moon, I was 'enchanted', as my title suggests. Within its pages you will find a spirit that is romantic and adventurous, and as you read it, you will see Emily conquer many hurdles in her life at New Moon farm. With the help of her dear friends, her beloved father's memory, and some harsh family members, the story is brought about delightfully. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and would recommend it to anyone who loves a spirited, romantic book. Once reading this, be prepared to be longing to read the second in the series, Emily Climbs.

    If you love touching and creative stories, this book is for you!

    In this charming story, Emily, an orphan, goes to live with her Aunt Elizabeth at New Moon. There, she experiences a different sort of life and goes through personality conflicts with her aunt. A young authoress, Emily improves her writing with struggle after struggle and her experience added to her knowledge shapes her character. You will love this splendid tale and you will be encouraged by her decisive yet obedient personality. Afterwards you won't wait to pick up the sequel, Emily Climbs. Enjoy this fun story!
