From the Back Cover

Romance is in the air as the Avonlea winter fair approaches. Felicity King is on tenterhooks as she waits for Gus Pike to ask her to the big event. And travelling skate salesman Wally Higgins finds in Hetty King the woman of his dreams. But the romantic mood changes when Aunt Hetty must take desperate measures to dissuade her enthusiastic new suitor and Felicity’s impatience becomes unbearable for all the King clan. Determined to set Cupid on the right path, Sara Stanley intervenes with a hope to solve these romantic dilemmas before it’s too late.

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.
