Ever since his mother left, life has not been easy for Heath Wellington, III.
Between his father's (Junior's) bouts with alcoholism and literary rejection, and Heath's own wrongful suspension from school, there has not been all that much to be thankful for.
But following the tragic death of estranged grandfather Senior, father and son alike stand to inherit a life-changing fortune...with one catch.
Heath and Junior must spend the next three months managing Senior's bed and breakfast, located in the same Massachusetts home Junior has spent the last eight years trying to escape.
As Heath adjusts to his new world, what he needs most is to understand that Junior, too, is dealing with loss, and to realise that, even in the most tragic of times, there is a lot in life to be thankful for.
This is a beautiful story of family and forgiveness, and a sure holiday classic.
