Thanksgiving at the Inn
Ever since his mother left, life hasn't 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 hasn't 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 that 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 realize that, even in the most tragic of times, there's a lot in life to be thankful for. Thanksgiving at the Inn is a beautiful story of family and forgiveness, and a sure holiday classic.
