Conversions is the sixth of twenty-nine titles in the Road to Avonlea storybook series, “based on the Sullivan Films productions adapted from the novels of Lucy Maud Montgomery.” Written by Gail Hamilton and based on the episode of the same name written by Patricia Watson, it was first published in Canada by HarperCollins in 1991 and reprinted in the U.S. by Bantam Skylark in 1992. It was preceded by Quarantine at Alexander Abraham’s and followed by Aunt Abigail’s Beau.

From the Back Cover

A visiting missionary’s rousing tales of adventure abroad fire up Sara Stanley’s imagination. With true zeal, she takes up the missionary’s cause with Peter Craig, the young hired hand at Rose Cottage. As she soon discovers, though, there’s more to goodness and charity than just going to church—and it’s Peter who teaches everyone that lesson.

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.
