The Road to the Old Stone Chapel
Mr. Shields has just bought the prominent Wentworth manor, which includes a barn, a guesthouse and an old stone chapel. He decides to renovate each structure back to its original splendor, but runs into a unique challenge with the chapel: the road has been destroyed by years of flooding by the beaver pond nearby. He thinks the solution is easy — move the beavers to another pond. But he soon finds he doesn't need beaver traps, but rather the wisdom of a magic man who teaches the ways of the surrounding wilderness.

Sparkle Kitchen: Beaver Tails
Don’t worry—this isn’t a recipe for actual beaver! Beaver tails are a traditional Canadian fried pastry, which is made in the distinctive oblong shape of a beaver’s tail. Covered in cinnamon and sugar—or topped with honey, lemon, or jam—a batch of hot beaver tails makes a cozy winter treat.
