Review

This is the eleventh title in the Road to Avonlea series, which is based
on the critically acclaimed television series (which has in turn been
adapted from the novels of Lucy Maud Montgomery).

Having been acquitted of embezzlement charges, Blair Stanley arrives in
Avonlea to take his 12-year-old daughter, Sara, back to Montreal with
him. During his ordeal with the law, Blair has left Sara in the care of
his dead wife’s family, the Kings. Upon hearing of Blair’s
intentions, the King family is heartbroken at the thought of losing
Sara. Blair and Aunt Hetty, who have long regarded each other as
enemies, recommence their family feud over Sara’s welfare. In a bid to
bring about a truce between her aunt and father, Sara runs away, hoping
that her disappearance will force them to reconcile their differences.

The book captures the warmth and charm of the “Road to Avonlea”
television series. Fans of the series will be delighted with this book.
For ages eight to twelve.
