Description

Emily Starr was born with the desire to write. As an orphan living on New Moon Farm, she was able to face the difficult, lonely times more easily because of her writing. But now her tyrannical aunt Elizabeth won't let her go to high school in nearby Shrewsbury unless she stops. Not one word of fiction until she graduates.
     At first, Emily can't imagine a life without stories, but soon she comes to see her aunt's restriction as an opportunity to expand her writing skills. When she has some poems published and begins writing for the town's newspaper, it's the first step in her climb to success--and it brings with it the first hints of romance as well. Then Emily is offered a fabulous opportunity, and she must decide if she wants to change her life forever.

Contributor Notes

Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874-1942) was born in what is now New London, Prince Edward Island, and raised by her grandparents after the death of her mother when she was just two. She worked for a time as a teacher and a journalist, then wrote her first novel, Anne of Green Gables, in the evenings while caring for her grandmother. She went on to publish twenty novels and hundreds of short stories, and she created, in Anne Shirley and Emily Starr, two of the most beloved characters in Canadian literature.
