** spoiler alert ** I've read the Emily series as a child and as an adult so many times I've lost count. My books are so lived in. The pages have penciled notes and are dog-eared. The bindings are broken, and there are at least a few pages that have been taped in. When Emily's father dies in the first book, I ached for her. When she is forced to leave her home and travel to a new one, among relatives who are virtual strangers, I felt her sadness. I even cried when she cried, and laughed when she'd find herself in another typical Emily-fiasco. Here more than in any of her stories, Montgomery writes with pure poetry. There are even entire descriptions in the Emily series that could stand alone as poems. Montgomery's writing is lyrical and true. These books are believable. Beautiful. Adventurous. They are my childhood favorites.
