    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.

    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..Show More »

    Emily is offered the chance to go to Shrewsbury High School with her friends, but there are two conditions: first, she must live with the aunt she dislikes, and second, she must not write for the duration of her high school education. At first, Emily refuses the offer, unable to contemplate a life without writing, but then her cousin changes the condition slightly, amending it to just a restriction concerning writing fiction. Emily does not think this is much of an improvement, but it turns out to be an excellent exercise for her budding writing career.

    I've waited years for Emily to go audio!

    Saying that, I have to say it was a pleasure to revisit her. The narrator doesn't do well with the accents she assigns to many characters unfortunate..Show More »

    With high school over, Emily Starr is ready to find her destiny - but she's not quite ready to leave the safety of New Moon farm. She knows that she doesn't need New York City or some other exotic locale to help her become a famous writer, but as all of Emily's friends begin moving away to pursue their own aspirations, she wonders if she's made the right decision.

    Lucy Maud Montgomery writes the VERY best stories

    I loved this trilogy immensely. I did get weary of the Murray pride. But all in all a very good story.
