Description


From the beloved author of Anne of Green Gables comes the story of Emily Starr, L.M. Montgomery's own favourite character, in the Emily of New Moon trilogy.

There are two things in life Emily Starr is certain of - that she will be a great writer and that she and Teddy Kent were destined to be together. School is over and one by one her friends leave to follow their dreams, including Teddy, who goes to art school in Montreal. Emily chooses to stay at New Moon, and though she misses her friends, she knows the path of a writer is a solitary one.

With each visit home Emily's friends seem more distant, especially Teddy. Desolate, but determined to hide her feelings, she throws herself into finishing her novel. When it is rejected, though, her confidence is shattered. To banish all thoughts of Teddy, Emily agrees to marry a man she doesn't love and give up on her dreams forever. But can she really have been so wrong about everything?

Heart-rending, magical and vibrant, Emily's unforgettable story concludes in Emily's Quest, a Virago Modern Classic.

About the Author


L. M. Montgomery was born in 1874 on Prince Edward Island, Canada, where she spent her childhood living with her grandparents in an old farmhouse. A prolific writer, she published many short stories, poems and novels, many of which were inspired by the years she spent on the beautiful Prince Edward Island. Anne of Green Gables and its sequels have always been amongst the most popular of children's classics, yet many readers consider the Emily trilogy to be better, and indeed, Emily was the author's own favourite character. Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942 and was buried on her beloved island.

Praise For…


At heart, Montgomery's ability to incorporate such complex themes into writing that is so accessible to younger readers makes her arguably the grandmother of the YA/adult crossover novel Jean Hannah Edelstein, Guardian
