As the fall weather cools and the days shorten, Shelley successfully rises to the challenge of hosting her father-in-law Ralph’s birthday party, with help from a surprising source. But when her mother-in-law suggests she put on the family Thanksgiving too, Shelley panics. How can she possibly meet Frances’ towering expectations? Diane, meanwhile, has an unexpected visitor: a college acquaintance bent on turning Orlean Point Light into a bed – and – breakfast. Margaret is put in the awkward position of creating a mural with an artist whose style couldn’t be further from her own. Beverly takes some tentative steps to put the burden of her mysterious past behind her, once and for all, while a sudden thought from Diane may hold the key to stopping her father’s downward spiral. And all four women are amazed when photos taken of their beloved lighthouse reveal ethereal visions of startling beauty.
