Publisher's Summary

Lucy Maud Montgomery, the Canadian author of the popular Anne of Green Gables series, introduces us to an endearing new heroine in Emily of New Moon. Like Anne Shirley, Emily Starr is a quick-witted and imaginative orphan who is sent to live with her two maiden aunts at New Moon Farm after her father dies. Though initially disheartened by her strict and conventional Aunt Elizabeth, Emily slowly grows to love her new family and New Moon Farm.

There she makes friends with Ilse Burnley, a tomboy with a blazing temper; quiet, artistic Teddy Kent; and Perry Miller, the hired boy, who Aunt Elizabeth looks down upon because he was born in the impoverished “Stovepipe Town”.

Montgomery considered Emily to be a character much closer to her own personality than Anne, and some of the events which occur in the Emily series happened to Montgomery herself. Emily is described as having black hair, purply violet eyes, elfin ears, pale skin, and a unique and enchanting “slow” smile.

This charming audio adaptation of Emily of New Moon is set against the backdrop of picturesque Prince Edward Island. A delightful story the whole family will enjoy!

Beautiful!!

I was so excited to learn that Meagan Follows would narrate one of my favorite books. I have loved Emily just a smidgen more than Anne. It was a lovely reading, although was didn't realize it was an abridged version. No matter. This will count as my 7th read. Loved it!

From Hilltops to Depths and Back Again

This young protagonist took me with her from glorious mountaintops to the depths of grief, through her joy-filled and tear-stained childhood with hope and mourning and most of all forgiveness and healing.

I'll read it again and again.

Beautiful narration

I have other copies of this book from Audible, but the narration by Megan Follows here is excellent. It make the story engaging and compelling in ways the others have not. If you're getting "Emily of New Moon", this is absolutely the one to buy.

Wonderful Narrator

Very enjoyable. I will always enjoy Megan Follows reading, especially Lucy Maud Montgomery stories. She understands that world. Her voices are distinct and I especially liked the Irish priest. I waited over a year for this recording. I am hoping that the producer will continue with the other Emily books with Ms. Follows as the narrator. I will buy ahead just like I did this one. My only criticism is that it is abridged and therefore ended too quickly.

I loved this audiobook! Listening to Megan Follows is just wonderful. Just can't wait for the second book in this serie to be released!
