Storyline

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}

What happened to a really great show?
22 May 2000 | by (Modesto CA) – See all my reviews

Monday night was set aside to sit together as a family and watch Hope Island. A clean, warm, funny, thought-provoking show is a rare find in this day and age. My entire family misses it and that includes my parents, my 19 year-old sister, and grandma and grandpa! Will some other network please get a hold of this show and keep it going? We were avid watchers of Due South as well and it was a hit in Canada. This is done in Canada, so I'm hoping that they will do whatever revamping is necessary to re-air the show. Please, bring it back as soon as possible!
