From the Back Cover

An orphaned baby sets the town of Avonlea topsy-turvy. As Aunt Hetty and Rachel Lynde squabble over the infant, Sara and Felicity secretly take matters into their own hands—surely, a baby left on the doorstep is just when newlyweds Aunt Abigail and Uncle Malcolm really need!

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.
