From the Back Cover

Avonlea is star-struck when Pigeon Plumtree, world-renowned actress and Sara’s cousin, sweeps into town. But the stars are crossed as pig farmer Pat Frewen tries to win Pigeon’s heart instead of Theodora Dixon’s, making Sara a confused Cupid. How will the curtain come down on Avonlea’s longest running romance?

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.
