Marilla Cuthbert passes away after taking a fall at Green Gables. Without Anne, who is recuperating from scarlet fever, or the children with him, Gilbert Blythe returns to Avonlea to pay his respects and deal with Marilla's estate. Two problems arise for Rachel. As Marilla was the guardian for young Davey and Dora Keith, Rachel is unsure if she can look after the children on her own. And although Gilbert and Anne would allow Rachel to stay at Green Gables for as long as she wished, Marilla died without a valid will. As such, Green Gables is bequeathed to Marilla's closest relatives, the McNeill family in Nova Scotia, and they plan to sell. Although Gilbert is trying to raise enough money to buy the property himself, he may be beaten to it by John Harrison, Rachel's nemesis, who bought Rachel's property for a song when her husband Thomas died. Rachel's own son in Prince Albert is unwilling to help in any way. The townsfolk rally to try and come up with a solution to beat John Harrison.... Written by Huggo
