Emily of New Moonfollows the story of Emily, an imaginative child, who is just left an orphan after her beloved father dies. Her mother's family, who never approved of her father, take her in, but only for the reputation of their good name. Emily's aunts take her to New Moon and she begins her new life with trepidation. But, her irrepressible enthusiasm and love of writing keep her happy and also manage to win the hearts of her family.
I really loved this adorable and beautifully written tale of Emily, who is such a lovable character. L.M. Montgomery's other quirky young orphan is definitely worth the time.
Overall rating: ****
