Inhaltsangabe zu „Emily of New Moon“ von Lucy M. Montgomery

Emily Starr has never known what it is to be unloved. But when her father dies, she is left in the care of her mother's family. Emily is a stranger to the proud Murrays, none of whom think they can cope with such a heartbroken, headstrong girl. They decide to draw lots for her, and Emily is sent to live at New Moon with stern Aunt Elizabeth, the head of the clan. Kind Aunt Laura and friendly, eccentric Cousin Jimmy also live at New Moon, though, so she is not without hope. Emily is enchanted by New Moon, but cannot believe she will ever belong there. With her lively imagination and dreams of being a famous writer, she seems to have a talent for scandalising her family. Before long, though, she has made firm friends: Ilse, a tomboy with a blazing temper, Teddy, an aspiring artist, and Perry, the ambitious houseboy. She brings so much life to New Moon, perhaps one day even Aunt Elizabeth will consider herself lucky to have 'won' Emily. (Quelle:'Flexibler Einband/01.05.2014')

    This is the first book in the trilogy about Emily Starr. It is similar to the Anne of Green Gable Books but again something entirely different. Emily is more focused on writing. Writing is the most precious thing to her. Next to her friends. This book is well written, maybe  a little difficult to read in english because it is quite old. Published in 1923. It's a childrens book and there are always good quotations. you grow up reading this book.  definitely recommend this novel!
