From the Back Cover

As Sunday school teacher Rachel Lynde sets out to Alexander Abraham’s farm in search of a truant pupil, so too does Felix (with the help of his sisters and cousin Sara) to warn his schoolmate of her impending arrival. But Felix, Sara and Mrs. Lynde not only find themselves thrown together in Mr. Abraham’s parlor, but quarantined too—with the old curmudgeon, Alexander Abraham.

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.
