From the Back Cover

While the ladies go into town for an auction and the men set off for a day of ice-fishing, Sara and her cousin Felicity King are left to mind the children. But the pleasant day is nearly ruined when petty arguments break out over past wrongs. It is not until Aunt Abigail’s little boy goes missing that the family is drawn back together in a desperate search to find him before it’s too late.

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.
