Christmas evokes heartfelt songs of joy and devotion. Yet so often we hold back and fail to express our feelings of love and joy to the ones we hold dear. This year, the residents of Cape Light and Angel Island will learn to speak what's in their hearts…
Adele Morgan has made a few mistakes in her life. After a serious medical scare, she realizes that her greatest regret is that she sat idly by while a petty dispute tore her family apart. She has returned to Cape Light determined to mend the relationship between her feuding sons and bring everyone together for the holidays. A daunting challenge even for a mother's brave and loving heart.
Adele's arrival elicits little delight. Molly Willoughby is overwhelmed with her catering business, and Sam Morgan is busy helping Reverend Ben with the Christmas festivities. Neither one seems to have time for their Grandma Addie and her plan to make things right. It will take a miracle to unite Adele's family under one roof this Christmas. Lucky for Adele, miracles can happen at the Inn at Angel Island.
Meanwhile, there's another visitor and this one's a skeptic determined to debunk Angel Island's legend. Grad student Jonathan Butler plans on staying long enough to prove the angel lore is nonsense and leave with a grand “bah humbug!” Stuck on the island for Christmas, he spends his time doing research in the Historical Center where he meets Tess Wyler, a local undergrad who helps him gather information. It's only a matter of time before he too falls under the island's spell and realizes that the proof of Angel Island and Cape Light's magic lies within.
