More About L. M. Montgomery
Lucy Maud Montgomery was born in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, in 1874. Educated at Prince Edward College, Charlottetown, and Dalhousie University, she embarked on a career in teaching. From 1898 until 1911 she took care of her maternal grandmother in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, and during this time wrote many poems and stories for Canadian and American magazines. Montgomery's first novel, Anne of Green Gables, met with immediate critical and popular acclaim, and its success, both national and international, led to seven sequels. Maud Montgomery also wrote the popular Emily of New Moon in 1923 followed by two sequels, and Pat of Silver Bush in 1933 with its sequel. L. M. Montgomery died in Toronto in 1942, but it is her early years of lush, green Prince Edward Island that live on in the delightful adventures of the impetuous redhead, the stories Mark Twain called "the sweetest creation of child life yet written."

A satisfying conclusion to Emily's story... Jan 9, 2008
The third and final book about young orphan Emily Byrd Starr focuses upon her struggle to establish herself as an author -- and her overall place as an adult woman. Childhood friend Ilse Burnley is planning her wedding to Teddy Kent, the young artist with whom Emily had established a soulmate connection as soon as she moved to New Moon at age 10. Meanwhile, neither Emily's ambition-filled friend Perry Miller nor the eccentric scholar Dean Priest have ever stopped asking Emily to marry them. How did everyone's emotions and intentions get so mixed up?
Then a terrible accident complicates matters further, and during her long convalescence, Emily begins to seriously wonder what she really wants in life -- and what she's willing to do to set things right.
This book is a beautiful conclusion to a classic trilogy about a very memorable young heroine.
Emilys Request Oct 13, 2007
Cora Alyce Seaman has written a book that I will pass on to my family. She has written a historical account of the Pittsburgh region that I have lived in all of my life and she is very accurate! It is one of those books that you can't sit down for a moment. She captures you immediately with the births of a set of twins and you must know every detail of this story. I look forward to reading more of this author's books!

Emily series is an excelent set of reading books. If you read Anne of Greengables series and enjoyed them then these books are a must.
A heart felt and beautiful ending Feb 9, 2007
The last chaptr in Emily's Tale is much devoted to love, and the longing confusion and heartache therein. Emily's love for Teddy has grown by leaps and bounds, but does he feel the same? She has returned from school in Shrewsbury. to find that her life at dear New Moon is not as it once was gone are the days of care free romps with her friends, who all seem to have foud their own paths to walk. Paths which rarely include Emily Ilse has found her place on the stage and seems happy, Perry is working toward political goals, and Teddy seems to be Doing well, but Emily rarely hears from him. Enter Dean Priest, He challenges Emily, and treats her as an equal. he loves her passionately, but can she say the same? Then Emily gets the news that Ilse and Teddy are to be married(WHAT)and it seems her decision is made She will marry Dean. Or will she? and what about Ilse and Perry's stormy relationship. Yikes is this a complex situation, but a great one! my only complaint is that EQ is much shorter then it's fellows and as such goes by far to fast. But all in all Emily's Quest is truly a wonderful ending to one of the best stories ever written.
This book is amazing! May 1, 2006
I have read this book more times than I can count. My mom bought the series for me when I was about 8. I read them then and didn't think much of them. I picked them up nearly ten years later after a particularly bad week, I completely fell in love with them. The book ends happily (who wants to read a book that ends the wrong way?), but deals with life in a much more realistic manner than the Anne books do. I've never seen depression captured more accurately than in some of Emily's journal entries. She's probably Montgomery's deepest character. She experiences a full spectrum of emotions -- more than just the happiness and anger that so many storybook characters are confined too. Emily Climbs and Emily's Quest are my favorite books of all time.
