Road to Avonlea (Series) (1990-1996)

Aka: Avonlea

Road to Avonlea
The series is set in the fictional small town of Avonlea, Prince Edward Island, in the early 20th century (1898-1910). There, 10-year-old Montréal heiress Sara Stanley (Sarah Polley) is sent by her wealthy father to live with her two maiden aunts, Hetty and Olivia King, to be near her late mother's side of the family. The show's focus shifted over the years from Sara's interactions with her new-found relatives, to stories about the King family. Later seasons of the show focused more on residents of Avonlea who were connected to the King family, and Sarah Polley eventually left the show, although she returned for several guest appearances.
