Introduced in The Story Girl, Sara Stanley is L.M. Montgomery's most enchanting heroine since Anne of Green Gables. Sara was born with a fertile imagination and a strong sense of fun--and she gets her chance to put her talents to good use when she spends the winter with the King family in the old-fashioned town of Carlisle.

On a blustery November day the King children and Sara, the Story Girl, come up with a great idea that will help them endure the dreary winter season. They will publish a magazine of their thoughts and adventures. From "Personals" and "Fashion Notes" to an etiquette column and stories of the most interesting happenings in Carlisle, OUR MAGAZINE is simply the most entertaining and delightful publication anyone in town has ever read. But seasons pass, and nothing is forever--and soon it will be time for the Story Girl to leave her good friends on Prince Edward Island, friends with whom she has walked the golden road of youth.

The Golden Road is a sequel to the popular book, The Story Girl. The Golden Road proceeds to narrate the tale of the beloved characters from the previous book. From age eleven to fourteen, Beverley and Felix King, Dan, Felicity, and Cecily King, Peter Craig, Sara Ray, and the Story Girl "walk the golden road of youth" together. The crew haven't changed, but they noticeably have more quiet, beautiful reflections than in the summer before, startling the reader with their mature thoughts. Of course, their hilarious adventures continue, not disappointing enthusiastic Story Girl readers. The "diamond", frosty winter charm and fun of this novel will delight and captivate readers as much as the golden, luxurious summer charm of The Story Girl did. While the ending is not as happy and satisfying as The Story Girl, and there are many dim foreshadowings of their futures, as the narrator Bev says, "We may long have left the golden road behind, but its memories are the dearest of our eternal possessions; and those who cherish them as such may haply find a pleasure in the pages of this book, whose people are pilgrims on the golden road of youth."
