The townsfolk are anticipating the arrival in Avonlea of the new minister, Reverend John Elliot, his wife Viola, and their son Booth. Before the Elliot's arrival, the townsfolk, led by Janet, prepare, including volunteering a reluctant Sara to be "ten" year old Booth's guide to Avonlea. When the Elliots arrive, the townsfolk learn that Booth is not "ten" but a late "teen". The Elliots, who have most recently done missionary work in Borneo and spent much time in New Orleans, are shaped by their unique experiences. They are self-professed as unconventional: free-thinking and modern. This view on life extends to Booth. Sara is attracted to the exciting Booth, and he to her. The questions become how long will Aunt Hetty tolerate Booth's influence on an impressionable Sara, and how long will the townsfolk tolerate the reverend and his family and their unconventional ways, a potential issue to traditional Avonleaers.
