From the Back Cover

When Sara and her King cousins go exploring the old, run-down Lloyd mansion—and discover the reclusive Old Miss Lloyd within—Sara makes it her mission to discover the secrets behind Old Lady Lloyd’s lonely, reclusive life. She gets some unexpected help from Sylvia Grey, Aunt Olivia’s dear friend and a talented songstress, whose beautiful voice casts a mesmerizing spell on hard-hearted Miss Lloyd, and begins to reveal the truth.

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.
