Meanwhile, Aunt Hetty grapples with loneliness and a potentially fatal back injury; Felicity searches for a new career; and Olivia considers moving back to Avonlea.

Gives closure
25 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode of Avonlea gives me goose bumps every time I turn it on. When the seventh season finished it was left rather wide open. I suppose that's the way it should be. I was so glad to see "Happy Christmas Miss King". I cried from the opening scene, all the way to the closing. It's amazing now nine years later we have loved ones back at the war front, and the emotions are the same as they were for those who had family in the First World War. The parallels of yesterday and today ring through soundly in this special. I have read some comments that say not worth the wait... well, I guess you just have to get it. If you love the life and times of Avonlea and dream there was still such a place, you will not be disappointed.
