Emily of New Moon (Paperback)
(This item cannot be returned.)
A lost classic by the author of Anne of Green Gables, Emily of New Moon is a coming-of-age story about newly orphaned Emily Byrd Starr, who deals with the loss of her beloved father as she tries to adjust to life at old-fashioned New Moon farm with her aunts and cousin. Emily, a budding writer with a mysterious sense of the otherworldly, makes quick friends in her new home and lands in more than her share of scrapes along the way. But she remains haunted by one thing: the scandalous mystery of what happened to her best friend's mother.
Will Emily thrive under the austere rule of her Aunt Elizabeth? What will happen when she visits her notorious Great-Aunt, Nancy Priest-rumored to be a witch? And will she learn what happened to the missing Beatrice Burnley-and at what cost?
With a new foreword by esteemed scholar Dr. E. Holly Pike, an expert with regard to L.M. Montgomery's career and works, this new edition will delight fans of all ages and introduce them to a heroine that the author felt closer to than her most famous character, Anne of Green Gables.
