Widowed Elizabeth gets ready for the birth of her baby with the help of her friends, Abigail and Rosemary. The trio gets stuck in a storm and must do their best to fend off a Christmas Eve disaster. In between lending a hand to Elizabeth and avoiding the holiday emergency, Abigail is also preparing to welcome a bunch of visitors to Hope Valley. One section of those visitors is a group of orphans and their chaperons who find themselves stranded in the picturesque Canadian town. While much of the town is ready to welcome the orphans, Bill Avery may have to make a difficult decision about their presence. With hope, heart and dedication, the residents of the charming town must come together in order to capture the magic of the season.
