Reverend Daniel Cooper has come to Hope Island to reopen the Community Church, hoping the assignment will help him through the grief of a terrible loss. Distrusted by the local inhabitants and with the church in a terrible state of disrepair and neglect, Daniel feels alone and rejected. He is befriended by a lonely boy named Dylan who will help him do repairs to the church. Daniel makes him an acolyte, much to the disapproval of Dylan's mom, Alex Stone, a single mother who runs the local inn 'The Widow's Walk'. Alex is the town's cynic who has long ago turned her back on the church. In time Daniel earns the trust and respect of Alex and many of Hope Island's colorful and eccentric characters. In turn the beauty and tranquility of Hope Island and the warmth of it's community will help Daniel heal, renewing and strengthening his faith. He finds love again as he comes to care deeply for Alex Stone. Written by Emmanuel Valerio {evalerio@shaw.ca}

Best show in a long time
6 January 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This show is one of the best I've ever watched. I accidentally found it one morning on Vision TV when i was off work sick and afterward I taped it every day so as not to miss it and then all of a sudden it was gone! I'm saddened and disappointed that television continues to air brain dead "reality" shows (demonstrating that people who write television no longer have any imagination)and programming full of violence and sexual content and yet removes a family show from the air. This is a show that even my husband enjoyed. He has a military background and loves anything army, western or cop so think about it. This was a show that everyone (regardless of age or gender) could enjoy together. I can't begin to count the number of times I've heard people complain about how people in general today have no values or respect, how society is becoming more violent, how sexualized everything is. Does no one wonder how it got to be this way? Why do we remove shows that have wonderful, endearing, REAL characters who emulate good, strong, ethical values, who struggle with everyday problems in a humorous, non violent, non sexualized way and replace them with everything we say we abhor? It's not like I am a person who is looking to censor everything that is vaguely naughty or one who won't watch the occasional movie that contains gratuitous violence. I enjoy NCIS and Criminal Minds but I have to admit, I truly miss the shows of my youth where it was about PEOPLE and CHARACTERS and everyday struggles and the resiliency of the human spirit and caring about others. I am truly disappointed in PAX's decision to take this show from the air. It's a Canadian show that I was truly proud of. I would love it if they would bring it back. Is there anyway to get a DVD of this series to the point it left off?
