Publisher: Orca Book Publishers

Fiction Ages 8-11
Emily shifted deeper into the hay, ignoring Dede's call. She had no intention of going back to the house to let Dede punish her. She'd rather stay in the hayloft all day.
In the sequel to Discovering Emily, Emily Carr is determined to become an artist. But her parents have died, and she and her siblings are ruled by the iron-willed eldest, Dede. Dede is more concerned with decorum than with ridiculous dreams and is not averse to punishing Emily severely. In the face of such resistance, and in the conservative climate of nineteenth-century Victoria, Emily must find a way to make her dream come true.
Emily's Dream is the second of two books in a series.
Book one is Discovering Emily.
