204pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). The third book in the "Emily" series. " 'Emily of New Moon' has now left the world of the High School, so vividly encountered in 'Emily Climbs', and the real battles of life begin in earnest for the orphan determined to overcome her early handicaps. In a dramatic and unexpected way she achieves success as a writer just as L.M. Montgomery did with 'Anne of Green Gables', after refusing an offer to go to New York and work in journalism. But she finds the problems of love and marriage far more difficult, and the author keeps the reader in genuine suspense until the last few pages. In the opinion of many critics the Emily books are superior to the 'Anne of Green Gables' series, for the author puts far more of herself and her real experiences into them. Whereas the Anne books are clearly written to entertain, the Emily books are written more from the heart, and thus carry greater conviction." Small bump at top of spine, slight bump at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling, one small edge tear archivally taped, minor rubbing.
