Storyline

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. Two additions from the King family arrive somewhat unexpectedly to stay on the King property, one being Andrew King, the son of third eldest Roger, who is off traveling the world as a renowned geologist. The other arrival is Sara Stanley, the only daughter of fourth eldest but deceased Ruth, who was the rebellious one in the family. Before Sara's arrival in Avonlea, the Stanleys were estranged from their Avonlea King relations. Sara is sent to stay with her relatives because her father, Blair Stanley, wants ... Written by Huggo

Road to Avonlea
30 October 2012 | by mary-hammond2See all my reviews

This series is my favourite television series of all and I am watching it episode by episode as Sky True Entertainment is showing it each day at the moment. I showed two episodes to my 6 year old granddaughter yesterday and she seemed to really like it as well. The scenery of Prince Edward Island looks so gorgeous that it makes me want to go there for a holiday. The stories are beautifully written, and the children are just such fun. Sarah is such an enchanting little girl and Felix seems such a typically naughty and cheeky boy. I just love the whole series! I think my daughter-in-law was rather worried that the innocent world portrayed in RTA, where Sarah goes into strangers houses and doesn't show any fear or wariness of possible danger from them, might be a bad example to children, whereas now they are always warned to beware of strangers. But of course we are looking at a different world then, which seems full of charm and magic.
