|About the Book|
I love the Emily books so much. Her passion and her dreams, along with her dignity, were expressed in a way that really appealed to me when I read them as an impressionable teenager. The formative years of every girls life are filled with wild hopes and worries and exhilaration, and as an adult, I re-read this series with a great deal of fondness.I also love Teddy Kent. Such a romantic character, and how lovely to have your childhood friend be the love of your life!Some of the anecdotes, like many of L.M. Montgomerys, do cross over into exaggerated predicaments and a wee bit of melodrama...but honestly, thats part of the fun of indulging in books like these.It had always seemed to Emily, ever since she could remember, that she was very, very near to a world of wonderful beauty. Between it and herself hung only a thin curtain- she could never draw the curtain aside-- but sometimes, just for a moment, a wind fluttered it and then it was as if she caught a glimpse of the enchanting realm beyond-- only a glimpse-- and heard a note of unearthly music.
