Back Cover Text
Emily Starr wanted to be a writer, and the old New Moon farmhouse at Blair Water was a happy place in which to “write herself out.” But it was in the neighbouring town of Shrewsbury where Emily, a girl with a lot of imagination, found scope for her considerable literary talents, and truly began her promising career. With this book, the Emily trilogy is complete in Canadian Favourites paperback editions.
Lucy Maud Montgomery’s fascinating accounts of the lives and romances of Anne, Emily, and other well-loved characters have achieved long-lasting popularity the world over. Born in 1874 in Prince Edward Island, Lucy Maud showed an early flair for story-telling. She soon began to have her writing published in papers and magazines, and when she died in Toronto in 1942 she had written more than twenty novels and a large number of short stories. Most of her books are set in Prince Edward Island, which she loved very much and wrote of most beautifully. Anne of Green Gables, her most popular work, has been translated into thirty-six languages, made into a film twice, and has had continuing success as a stage play. Lucy Maud Montgomery’s early home at Cavendish, P.E.I., where she is buried, is a much-visited historic site.
