From the Back Cover

When Aunt Abigail’s old flame, the dashing Malcolm MacEwan, suddenly reappears in Avonlea to ask for her hand in marriage, she accepts immediately—only to feel her resolve begin to waver. It will be up to Sara and Felicity—Cupid’s earth-bound partners—to ensure that love and romance prevail!

Adapted from the award-winning, internationally acclaimed television series, the magical adventures of “The Story Girl” continue—in the spirit and tradition of Lucy Maud Montgomery—for a new generation of young readers.
