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}

Better than Gilmore Girls
1 June 2004 | by (Chile) – See all my reviews

As always happen to me, losing some time I found this show and was just an episode a good reason to become a fan. I know, it's and American version of an Irish show, but in some way it has some things in common with Gilmore Girls: maybe the little town with many good an lovely characters who make this show something unique. With Gilmore Girls, the stories change to something too "beautiful" and silly, like human version of some kind "Hello kitty show", everything was so perfect and clean (the reason why I don't watch it anymore). Instead Hope Island there was a realistic version of the characters, not all was clean and perfect, some themes where very tragic, but with a deep exploration of everything. But what's is better, as I told to a christian friend, there is more heart, true and faith in this show than many studies of the bible I have read in my life, and that's make it unique.
