Emily of Deep Valley: A Deep Valley Book

by Maud Hart Lovelace (Author)

“I re-read these books every year, marveling at how a world so quaint—shirtwaists! Pompadours! Merry Widow hats!—can feature a heroine who is undeniably modern.” —Laura Lippman

“There are three authors whose body of work I have reread more than once over my adult life: Charles Dickens, Jane Austen and Maud Hart Lovelace.” —Anna Quindlen

Often considered Maud Hart Lovelace’s best novel, Emily of Deep Valley is now back in print. This gorgeous volume includes a new foreword by acclaimed young adult author Mitali Perkins, and compelling historical material about the real people who inspired Lovelace’s beloved characters. Emily of Deep Valley joins the Harper Perennial Modern Classics library next to other enduring favorites like A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Lovelace’s Betsy-Tacy books.
