Dreams Schemes and Mysteries - Story Girl, Bk 4 Author:L. M. Montgomery Based on stories by Lucy Maude Montgomery (author of Anne of Green Gables) this series of four books tells the story of Sara Stanley, a young girl who earns the name The Story Girl. She keeps the other children spellbound with her tales.
Toward the end of the cousins' summer together on Prince Edward Island, the Story Girl has an idea for them all to do together - a preaching contest followed by a bitter-apple-eating contest. Both contests end in near disaster as Peter, a neighbor boy, falls deathly ill. The kids decide that lots of prayer and good behavior will make him well. And it works. Things quiet down until a letter arrives saying that at long last the mysterious blue chest stored at the King Homestead can be opened and its secret revealed.
