Storyline

The King family have lived in a small farming community called Avonlea on Prince Edward Island for generations. In the early 1900's, the eldest of the five King siblings, Hetty, oversees the goings-on in the family and ensures everything runs to her high and rigid standards. Eldest brother, Alec, and his family run the King farm. Youngest sister Olivia, who still is treated as the baby by the others despite being a grown woman, is the third of the siblings still living in Avonlea. Two additions from the King family arrive somewhat unexpectedly to stay on the King property, one being Andrew King, the son of third eldest Roger, who is off traveling the world as a renowned geologist. The other arrival is Sara Stanley, the only daughter of fourth eldest but deceased Ruth, who was the rebellious one in the family. Before Sara's arrival in Avonlea, the Stanleys were estranged from their Avonlea King relations. Sara is sent to stay with her relatives because her father, Blair Stanley, wants ... Written by Huggo

Simply Magical!
16 October 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a fan of Lucy Maude Montgomery, I really appreciated this show. It is one about family and values during the early part of the 20th century. It is a show of romance and innocence that can be appreciated at any age. A good show for all. I had the opportunity to visit PEI this past summer and see Avonlea and Green Gables. It was magical! Awesome show!
