Storyline

Daniel Madighan and his music band mates gave young Cate a jolly youth in the quaint town of New Kerry, MA, until the death of his wife Marie, which forces him to entrust her to family elsewhere. She grows up to become a lifestyle magazine editor in New York. While preparing her wedding to a medic tycoon, she receives Danny's ashes and his last request, returning to her hometown to scatter them. Grudgingly she does so, discovering her roots. Thus she learns Daniel didn't deserve her disdain and meets handsome, idealistic lawyer Connor Bailey, whom she falls in love with but seems unwilling to cancel her society engagement for.

Nice happy film
4 January 2008 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Having seen most of Laura Leighton's work, I put my screener copy of this film in my DVD player with glee and I was not disappointed. It's a slow and sleepy little movie that, even though was predictable, was quite enjoyable.

The cast is most un-knowns with the big name star being Laura Leighton playing Cate Madighan, a high powered New York Magazine editor, which is a big move from her early days as Sydney Andrews on Melrose Place. Laura is bright and bubbly and full of emotion as Cate who struggles to come to terms with the death of her father who abandoned her many years ago, who now wants her to full-fill his dying wish.
