From the Back Cover

When Edwin Clark, Olivia King’s one true love from years ago, suddenly reappears in Avonlea, it is all she can do to keep her head on straight, as both Edwin and Jasper Dale vie for her affections. It will be up to Sara to solve Olivia’s dilemma, with the help of Felix, Peg Bowen—and Jasper himself!

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.
