Emily's Quest, by L. M. Montgomery.
on 4 September 2015
This book continues the story of Emily Starr. We are with her as she writes and gets rejection slips - and stories published - until something happens that stops her writing for a while. For she has relationships to cope with. People in Emily's life wonder who she will marry? Will it be the Rev. James Wallace? Or the romantic Aylmer Vincent? Or Dean Priest? Or Teddy Kent? All these are in her life, some more than others. Will she end up marrying a man she doesn't really love? It looks like she will! Will Ilse marry someone she doesn't love? It looks like she will! The book does include one marriage where the bride disappears at the crucial time! And we also read about the jealous woman who tries to ruin Emily's life but who comes to regret it. There is a lot in this very meaningful book - There is great sadness but there is great joy too. It is a book well worth reading, and those who appreciate and enjoy L. M. Montgomery's stories about Emily will not be disappointed by reading it to its end.
