~Solo [ENG] Emily's Quest by Lucy Maud Montgomery - hok

Post by SweetPea » Mon 24. Oct 2016, 01:47

Emily's Quest by Lucy Maud Montgomery 1874 - † 1942
After graduating from high school, Emily Starr is finally, in her aunt's eyes, "grown up." As the years roll by, she encounters failure and success, tears and triumphs during her long climb to fame. Trouble is on the horizon, with an injury that seems to wipe away Emily's dreams of becoming a famous writer. When her childhood sweetheart Teddy and her best friend Ilse leave to pursue their own dreams, Emily agrees to marry an old friend. But does she love him? Can Emily ever be truly happy without her writing? Or without Teddy?

In this, semi-biographical, final Emily novel, L. M. Montgomery brings us once more into the quaint world of Blair Water, where she spins a tale that is at once a bittersweet romance and an inspiring story of a young woman trying to find her way in the world by her pen.

This will be a very slow solo, which I will probably do when I need a break from LV commitments and homework, so I'm OK with having a DPL who isn't super speedy. This is the third in the trilogy, it is the sequel to Emily Climbs. I'm looking forward to reading this again!

Edit: PL is standard, but if possible I would appreciate any constructive feedback on my reading. :)
