Publisher's Summary

When Sara Stanley, the Story Girl, returns to Carlisle to spend the winter with the King family, she comes up with a great idea. To help them through the dreary months ahead, she, Felicity, Cecily, and Dan will publish a magazine. From “Personals” to “Fashion Notes,” from the etiquette column to its stories of the most interesting happenings in Carlisle, Our Magazine quickly becomes the most entertaining publication anyone in town has ever read.

But seasons pass, 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.

Critic Reviews

“Lush, evocative…timeless…Conlin sustains the idyllic, gossipy quality of Montgomery’s story…She projects the sentimental aura of the turn of the century.” ( AudioFile)

Good classic book; AWFUL narrator

Where does The Golden Road rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Pretty high up since I am a HUGE LMM fan!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Golden Road?

The scenes involving all the children. Particularly when Felicity gave Peter the "Stay away from drink" bookmark LOL

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Grace Conlin?

Some with a fresh voice reminiscent of Sara or Felicity. The drawl really spoils the essence of this book and makes me feel sleepy.

great writing

this is one of my favorite books which is strange because I am a middle-aged man, but I can enjoy a well-told tale no matter if it features a female heroine or a male hero. I still have tears in my eyes from the last paragraphs it is almost impossible to hear this ending of the story without shedding a few tears it's so well written! I wish more books were like this.

A nice story

The story is good and I enjoyed the performance but it's missing most of chapter 8.
