From the Back Cover

After more than thirty years, who should return to Avonlea but Aunt Hetty’s old flame, Romney Penhallow—and it seems he’s back to win her heart again! As the whole town cheerfully observes Romney’s wooing, the fortress of Hetty’s pride seems to be crumbling. Could Avonlea’s prim and proper schoolmarm really be falling in love?

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.
