Afternoons with Emily: A Novel by Rose MacMurray

In mid-19th-century Amherst, Emily Dickinson is famous both for her notable family and for her reclusive ways, and only Miranda Chase, a smart girl with big plans for her own life, is allowed to enter the budding poets very private world. At first, their Monday afternoon visits involve discussing books over piping hot cups of tea, but when Miranda begins exploring her own yearnings--for love, for an education, even for a career--she discovers that being a friend of Emilys is not without its dangers. The very charisma that has inspired her becomes a web of intrigue, and to escape it, Miranda will imperil her reputation, her independence, and even her dreams.Drawing on letters, poems, and everything that is known about Dickinsons life, AFTERNOONS WITH EMILY is a vivid portrait of Americas most famous poet, a coming-ofage story that spans the Civil War, and a tale of two brilliant women who each chose to break with convention and live life on their own terms.
