This Christmas will change the Austin family forever. With a successful career in the wine business, two amazing children and having married his highschool sweetheart Suzie Maxwell, Andrew Austin has everything. But life and a past secret quickly bring change and in an instant, life no longer has the order and gentleness it once held. Suzie falls extremly ill and as Andrew struggles to find answers, his children Chris and Mary quietly search for their own. Facing a hectic holiday season, Andrew and family retreat to their summer home on Lake Erie to celebrate their last Christmas in peace. Away from the demands of the city, their world opens up to a moment in time they will never experience again as their small lakeside community quickly brings them its own wonderments. Written by Wm. Laufer

Sarah my favorite
20 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sarah Smith MADE the movie for me. She was so extremely convincing as the aborted daughter, Martha. Everyone else was OK, but SARAH, oh, Sarah was the best!She was so amazing that I would hire her to work for me and indefinitely become a huge star. Sarah Smith is the best actress in this movie, beyond a shadow of a doubt! When given the opportunity, this girl will most likely shine throughout the country as a great and beauteous celebrity. Let's hear a cheer of Sarah Smith, shall we? I cannot stress how much this girl has influenced my views as a movie-viewer. I was brought to tears! I could just go on, and on, and on, and on, and ON about her!

Sarah was my favorite. Emmy-worthy performance!
