Storyline

Molly Logan and Lucas Bishop were childhood friends and high school sweethearts in Danbury Falls, Vermont. Molly's family founded the town two hundred years ago, with her immediately family still living on the same property, where her parents, Gordon and Betty Logan, have continued the family business of operating a Christmas tree farm. Since they were children, Molly knew she wanted to become a writer, a dream which her parents supported. Lucas knew he wanted to become a photographer, something his banker father, Elliot Bishop, vehemently didn't allow him to pursue as a career, he believing only in guaranteed good paying careers like his own. Molly and Lucas broke up years ago when he would not follow her to New York, where they would have pursued their professional dreams. They have not seen each other since. After getting an MBA, Lucas returned to Danbury Falls to work at the bank. Molly works at a publishing house, where her recently widowed boss, Walter Dunlap, treats her more as... Written by Huggo

Every tree tells a story....but will it be interesting?
14 November 2015 | by story_by_coreySee all my reviews

Every tree has a story to tell? In this case, Molly Logan and her childhood boyfriend Lucas Bishop come across our subject tree while exploring her family's Vermont Christmas tree farm. The tree is sick and Molly's dad wants to chop it down. Molly bonds to the tree and brings it back to life through her music. After an abrupt and unexplained fast-forward to Molly's adult life, the tree shows up at her posh New York office as a delivery for her boss. Molly immediately recognizes the tree as her long-lost friend and feels compelled to return it back to their home in Vermont so they can share Christmas together. What are the chances of this happening outside of a made-for-TV Christmas movie?

Back in Vermont, Molly discovers the family farm is in foreclosure and Lucas now works for the developer trying to turn it into a "green" golf course. Horrified, Molly gets to work saving the family farm. While the Christmas tree watches all this happen from the homestead living room, Molly's deep-pocket,recently-widowed boss Walter shows up because his kids want to spend Christmas with Molly. A hint of a rivalry for Molly's love ensues between Logan and Walter. Who will win Molly's heart? Will the family keep the farm? Does the tree end up saving Christmas? You can probably guess where this tree's story is going from here.

Un- or underdeveloped characters, mediocre acting and numerous loose ends in the story line turns this tree's saga into something that becomes easily forgettable. Every tree may have a story, but not all of them will be interesting or even well told.
