In the sequel to Discovering Emily, Emily Carr is determined to become an artist.

Emily's 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.

"Pearce has created strong characters and plausible dialogue. Recommended."
