This was a lovely story. I have never read L.M. Montgomery, but will listen to additional books by her. They are not deep but are perfect for listening while falling asleep and dreaming. I wish that I had an opportunity to read her during my childhood. What wonderful spunky characters!
I'm in my 70s and have read or listened to hundreds of books, if not thousands, and I found this to be highly entertaining, interesting, and funny. Emily has gotten a raw deal in life, but she is trying to make the best of it with her maiden aunts and assorted friends and neighbors, and in school with a crowd of teasing children and a very strict teacher. She manages to get into some scrapes, but learns from them. She is a budding writer, and grows in that role, with some embarrassing moments and some honest criticism. I have not read/listened to the Anne of Green Gables books by L.M. Montgomery, but I will probably do that now because i like her style. I'm sure that Emily is partly Lucy. There are various narrators, but they all do a fine job of giving nuance to the different characters.
