Emily Byrd Starr's mother died when Emily was just four years old, but Emily has never been lonely. She has her father, her imagination, her writing, and her cats. But when her father dies, her world is turned upside down. She is sent to live at New Moon farm with her stern aunt Elizabeth, who lets Emily bring only one of her cats and forbids her to write in her beloved journal.
Emily is sure she'll be miserable, but she soon discovers new friends, the beauty of her surroundings, and an inner strength she never knew she had. Maybe it won't be so bad being Emily of New Moon after all.

Review: Emily of New Moon (Emily of New Moon #1)

User Review  - Skye Bryant - Goodreads

Loved this offering by the author of Anne of Green Gables. Although Montgomery herself favored Emily over Anne, I can not completely agree. Both are strong female characters, but my heart will always belong to the Anne girl with an E. This was a great read. Read full review
