Publisher's Summary

Emily Starr had never known what it was to be lonely - until her beloved father died. In this, the first of the Emily novels, young Emily is orphaned and goes to live with her mother's snobbish relatives at New Moon Farm. Sure that she'll never be happy there, Emily endures her stern Aunt Elizabeth and malicious classmates by holding her head high and using her quick wit.

But things begin to change as Emily makes several new friends. There is Teddy, who does marvelous drawings; Perry, who has sailed all over the world with his father and has never been to school; and Ilse, a tomboy with a blazing temper. Amazingly, Emily finds New Moon Farm beautiful and fascinating. With new friends and adventures, Emily might someday think of herself as Emily of New Moon.

    "Not as refined as Anne but Emily's interesting"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, while it's easy to see Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables, Avonlee… ) Rebecca of Sunnybrook as classics. This to should be amoung them. Somehow not as refined as the Anne books (same author) similarities in setting and conditions but just a little more disjointed. Subtly darker than Rebecca of Sunnybrook but engaging characters. Best read after the Anne series as it's easier to get a feel for the era and settings.


    What other book might you compare Emily of New Moon to and why?

    Anne of Greengables, same settings, similar situations just a little darker. In a larger view it's probably closer to Rebecca of Sunnybrook. Casually cruel aunts, matching intolerance and sense off entitlement.


    Have you listened to any of Susan O’Malley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't . She does a good job with few mistakes. It seems it would ne difficult to voice a historical as well as regional story. But she does a good job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Difficult question, as an adult male it's harder to respond to the emotions of a young turn of the century girl. But Emily did have an emotional depth that was understandable .


    Any additional comments?

    While I have a preference for the Anne books, I still feel these Emily books (3 in all) are, just as Rebecca of Sunnybrook and Pollyanna must reads. I found more of an emotional connection with Anne amd Becky than Emily hut a stronger historical picture with Emil..

    "Loved the book, this narrator stinks"

    UGH! I can't even get through the first chapter with this droning, mechanical voiced narrator. This is awful.

    "One of my most beloved books"

    Another true Canadian classic by L.M. Montgomery. Inspired me to write as a young person. I reread the series at least once per year. I am a little disappointed that book 2 and 3 are not available on Audible (claiming they are not authorized for release in my country).

    "I've always loved Emily. "

    So happy that Emily has finally been turned into an audio. I do think the narrator does a good job except for several accents she gives characters that are horrible. Better read straight than butcher a character.

    "What a difference tone makes"

    I've always found Emily Starr to be the most interesting and enjoyable of L M Montgomery's heroines, and her story remains my favorite. This narrator, unfortunately, sounds distinctly bored, and has decided that Emily speaks in a constant, plaintive whine. A shame.

    "Great"

    This is a great book that I truly enjoy and went on to read the next two books, which were both as good. Emily of New Moon is just a little bit different from Anne of Green Gables, but is just as exciting and fun to read.

    Beautifully narrated. I read all the Emily books in my early teens and loved them. This was a great way to revisit them.

    "Another L.M Montgomery Delight"

    Being a firm lover of the authors works I may be somewhat biased but this was my first step away from the Anne of. . . series and I must say I was as enchanted by Emily and this ensemble as I am by Anne. A lovely story, well worth a listen. I did find the reader a little stilted at times but this became part of the charm for me I suppose.
