"A Yearling book."; When Emily's father dies, leaving her an orphan, she is sent to live with a stern aunt in Prince Edward Island, where her resourcefulness and love of writing help her adjust to a new way of life.
After Emily Star's father died, making her an orphan, Emily was shipped off to New Moon Farm, owned by her mother's snobbish relatives. Convinced she will hate her new life, Emily reluctantly tries to get along with her relatives and fit in at school. New Moon Farm is nothing like what she expected it will be, and nothing will ever be the same for her. While similar to the Anne of Green Gables stories, the Emily stories were much more autobiographical in nature and give a greater glimpse into Lucy Maud Montgomery's life and times.
