Lucy Maud Montgomery, the Canadian author of the popular Anne of Green Gables series, introduces us to an endearing new heroine in Emily of New Moon. Like Anne Shirley, Emily Starr is a quick-witted and imaginative orphan who is sent to live with her two maiden aunts at New Moon Farm after her father dies. Though initially disheartened by her strict and conventional Aunt Elizabeth, Emily slowly grows to love her new family and New Moon Farm. There she makes friends with Ilse Burnley, a tomboy with a blazing temper; quiet, artistic Teddy Kent; and Perry Miller, the hired boy, who Aunt Elizabeth looks down upon because he was born in the impoverished “Stovepipe Town.” Montgomery considered Emily to be a character much closer to her 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, elfin ears, pale skin, and a unique and enchanting “slow” smile. This charming audio adaptation of Emily of New Moon is set against the backdrop of picturesque Prince Edward Island. A delightful story the whole family will enjoy!

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Actress Megan Follows is best known for her TV portrayal of L. M. Montgomery’s more famous orphan character, Anne of Green Gables. Here, with terrific range, Follows narrates the first book in a separate series from the author…Follows uses a solemn, quiet tone as tough matters are discussed and emits a fierce ‘no!’ when adamant deathbed wishes are made. As Emily, Follows conveys vulnerability with a quiet and meek voice, but when Emily reaches her boiling point, she yells at classroom bullies exactly what she thinks of them.” AudioFile
“Emily’s story is thought-provoking and inspirational for young readers. Highly recommended.” Canadian Book Review

Author Bio: L. M. Montgomery

Lucy Maud Montgomery was born on November 30th, 1874, in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, Canada. Although she lived during a time when few women received a higher education, Lucy attended Prince Wales College in Charlottestown, PEI, and then Dalhousie University in Halifax. At seventeen she went to Halifax, Nova Scotia, to write for a newspaper, the Halifax Chronicle, and for its evening edition, the Echo. But Lucy returned to live with her grandmother in Cavendish, PEI, where she taught and contributed stories to magazines. It was this experience, along with the lives of her farmer and fisherfolk neighbors, that came alive when she wrote her Anne books, beginning with Anne of Green Gables (1908). Anne of Green Gables brought her overnight success and international recognition. It was followed by eight other books about Anne and Avonlea, as well as a number of other delightful novels, including her Emily series, which began in 1923 with Emily of New Moon. But it is her delightful heroine Anne Shirley, praised by Mark Twain as “the most moving and delightful child of fiction since the immortal Alice,” who remains a popular favorite throughout the world. She and her husband, the Rev. Ewen MacDonald, eventually moved to Ontario. Lucy Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942.
