Emily of New Moon


Read by Leanne Fortune

(4.7 stars; 143 reviews)

Emily Starr never knew what it was to be lonely -- until her beloved father died. Now Emily's an orphan, and her mother's snobbish relatives are taking her to live with them at New Moon Farm. She's sure she won't be happy Emily deals with stiff, stern Aunt Elizabeth and her malicious classmates by holding her head high and using her quick wit. Things begin to change when she makes friends: with Teddy, who does marvelous drawings; with Perry, who's sailed all over the world with his father yet has never been to school; and above all, with Use, a tomboy with a blazing temper. Amazingly, Emily finds New Moon beautiful and fascinating. With new friends and adventures, Emily might someday think of herself as Emily of New Moon. (Lippincott 1923) - Summary by Lippincott Publishing 1923 (12 hr 54 min)

Wonderful book, but no good ending!!!!!

Excellent Reader


(5 stars)

I wasn’t sure about the accent at first, but very quickly got into the book and characters because it was so excellently read. I actually think the accent added to it in the end. There was some disturbing themes relating to animals which I found difficult, but I guess that was the times sadly. Would love to listen to more books read by this reader. Thank you.

Great book but disturbing


(3 stars)

Great book but some very disturbing characters. The Aunt Elisabeth and Teddy's mother are evil people. Drowning and poisoning animals. Those characters are more sinister than Charles Dickens's villains. With all that though I say Emily is still one of the best girl characters I have read aboutđź‘Ť
