Storyline

DeeDee returns to her hometown with her 11 year old son, Trooper, 13 years after she ran off with her boyfriend. Her childhood best friend, Sam, is now married and he and his wife, Lydia, are the town's veterinarians. Lydia is a little wary about DeeDee after Sam tells her that they were best friends growing up and DeeDee was his first crush. But DeeDee and Trooper find their way into many hearts of the townspeople with their sweet helpfulness and friendships. DeeDee sets up a candle making business in town square and invites many of the ladies of the town to weekly candle making parties, and through these parties she and Lydia become good friends. One evening after dinner with Lydia and Sam, DeeDee tells Sam she's very sick and she doesn't have much longer to live and she needs his help to find a good family in town to adopt Trooper. Sam later tells Lydia everything and they decide to adopt Trooper themselves if/when something happens to DeeDee. Written by baylormoviechic

A sweet film, if a trifle forced... the sentimental among us will embrace it, not doubt
27 November 2006 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Dee Dee (Alicia Silverstone) has returned to her hometown in Maine. Her mother is deceased and Dee Dee moves into the family home with her young son, Trooper. A candlemaker, Dee Dee is longing to rekindle a friendship with her longtime buddy, Sam. Sam has stayed in the area and is the town's veterinarian, along with his wife, Lydia, also an animal doctor. Lydia is properly skeptical, at first, fearing Dee Dee as a rival for Sam's affections. Yet, it is soon clear that Dee Dee only needs a friendly relationship with the two of them. Lydia even takes a candle making class from Dee Dee, where a group of local women develop a camaraderie and connection that was missing before Dee Dee's arrival. And, Trooper begins to work at the vets' clinic, where the two doctors learn to love him, too. Dee Dee, however, has a big secret. When it is revealed, what will the consequences be? This is a sweet story that has small town values and a big heart. Silverstone is fine as the warm, free-spirited Dee Dee and the rest of the cast is quite nice, too. There are many who will appreciate the lovely setting in Maine. It is quite possible, however, that some viewers may find it predictable and the ensuing pathos, a trifle forced. Okay. But, for those who love tales that will result in more than a few sighs and tears, here is a movie made to order. When it comes to a sweet story with good values, no one probably does it better than Hallmark. Given the present penchant for violence and bed hopping in movie making, this one is a refreshing change.
