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.

This is quite simply the best show that I ever watched. I watched it when I was as young as the child actors on the show and watching it now reminds of the joy and innocence of those times. I am so glad to have watched this show. Pure magic! The era its set in and the innocence of all the characters is really appealing. Unlike today's vulgar crap thrown into every show. The show is loosely based on novels by L.M. Montgomery, the 'avonlea' titles. Some of the original characters in the book are included in the show, but most of the lead characters are new. While the books were about a poor orphan girl who's reluctantly adopted and how she adds meaning and joy into people's lives, the show is about a rich orphan girl with a lot of money, who's living with her aunt. The settings are simply brilliant, as are the plots and the acting. The best gift you can give to your kids.
