As Christmas approaches, Mary Ellen and the baby leave to be near Curt; the Baldwins shelter two children from England; Verdie bakes and sells cakes to raise money for the needy overseas.

[narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal
I remember that Christmas when all the sounds and events of the world spoke against the holiday. London was being bombed, the evil of Nazi rule was spreading across Europe and, on Walton's Mountain, Indian summer held off the snows of winter. It was a year two young English children were to seek refuge on the mountain and it was a year when my mother's faith was put to its severest test.
