Jane Creary wants to resume a normal life for her family after being immersed in the railroad scandal that delayed the train’s arrival to Noelle. Christmas is coming, and her mother is dying, so Jane is determined to fill this last Christmas with as many good memories as she can.
Romeo Johnson is a gifted stained-glass artist whose parents believe his skill is a waste of his family’s academic heritage. Exiled to Noelle to be taught a lesson in humility, he’s doing his best to help his cousin, who blames the Crearys for the railroad’s delay.
When Jane asks Romeo to make a stained-glass window to brighten her mother’s final days, he is forbidden by his family from helping her. In this twist on the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet, will Romeo’s gift to Jane finally bring the town of Noelle together, or will their sacrifices tear them all further apart?
