Synopsis: In this novel in Thomas Kinkade’s heartwarming series, the holiday season brings changes and challenges to many in Cape Light. But on one silent night, peace and harmony will prevail.
 
Sophie Potter is grateful for so many happy years among her beloved apple trees. But her family insists that she can no longer live alone. So Sophie makes a deal to spend one last Christmas on Potter Orchard. Luckily, her grandson James arrives in time to help her make plans for the best holiday gathering Cape Light has ever seen. James isn’t planning on staying in Cape Light. An aspiring writer, he’s eager for adventure and plans to take off on a trip around the world. But once James meets Zoey Bates, he starts to understand that leaving Cape Light might cost him the greatest adventure of all—falling in love.
 
Meanwhile, after more than fifteen years as Cape Light’s mayor, Emily Warwick has lost the election to her lifelong rival, Charlie Bates. Emily is delighted to have more time for her family, but when a group of citizens begin fighting to preserve the town’s character, Emily can’t shake her desire to protect her town. Soon she finds herself back on a familiar battleground with Charlie and her family. It’s not the place anyone wants to be. Especially on Christmas.
