Winter is here, the weather is cold, and some people have no place to call home. When a stranger comes into town, kind villagers take him in.
This was a nice Christmas story, full of sentiment and human goodness. I enjoyed the glimpse of a fictional community and its quirks and kindnesses. Reminiscent of other "small town" series, it caught my attention during a week when I had a few hours to indulge in wholesome entertainment.
I'd recommend it as a minimal-effort romance for lovers of all things British. You'll come away with a smile of satisfaction at the happy ending.
