Second in the trilogy about an orphan girl with big dreams from the beloved author of Anne of Green Gables and featured in Netflix’s Russian Doll.
Orphaned and sent to live with her stern aunts at New Moon Farm on Prince Edward Island, Emily Byrd Starr lives a solitary life. She finds comfort in language and writing. She loves to read the dictionary and frequently records all of her problems and worries in her journal—much more fun than knitting stockings.
Fortunately, Emily has made some friends but they’re heading off to high school in Shrewsbury. Emily’s aunt Elizabeth allows her to go on the condition that she stop writing. With the help of her cousin, Emily manages to strike a deal.
Once in Shrewsbury, Emily embarks on her climb toward success with her friends—Ilse, Teddy, and Perry—by her side. Everything begins to go so well. Emily starts writing stories and poems—she even writes for the town newspaper. Soon sparks begin to fly between her and Teddy. But when a fantastic opportunity come her way, Emily is forced to make a decision that will alter the course of her life forever . .
