Storyline

Instead of taking care of a husband, Janet's spinster sister, Abigail Ward, has funneled her energies into being a meticulous homemaker despite not really enjoying it. Things may change when into her life returns Malcolm McEwan, an old beau who has been away from Avonlea for seven years. He has returned to make good on a promise: Abigail's father would not allow the two to marry until Malcolm made a fortune, which he has now done in Yukon gold. He now wants to marry Abby as he calls her. Abby is in a quandary. She likes having the attention of a man, but realizes that she and Malcolm are extremes in personality (he loud and brash, she overly meticulous). But mostly, she fears two things: that she will lose her independence, and if she truly does fall in love with him all over again that he may run off much like he did seven years ago. Malcolm's return not only affects Abby, but also Alec, who is feeling restless about the choices he's made in life. Written by Huggo

Trivia

The Georgian style print on the wall of Aunt Abigail's house, seen as she's unpacking crates of household furnishings, is of Thomas Gainesborough's famous painting of Georgiana Cavendish, the Duchess of Devonshire. Painted in 1787, the portrait is famous partly for having been stolen multiple times, first, from Devonshire House, and later from the London gallery of Thomas Agnew & Sons. See more »
