With the holidays drawing near, Charlotte is starting to feel the pinch of having three extra mouths to feed. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and a cooking demonstration—plus a little nudging from her good friends—inspires Charlotte to start a pie-baking business to bring in some extra income during this busy time of year.
She recruits her grandkids to help, hoping to pass on the family's recipes as well as their traditions. But when her business takes off, the whole thing becomes bigger than any of them ever imagined—or wanted.Meanwhile, Sam is pining for a car, Emily is on a campaign to improve the food served at Bedford High, and Christopher befriends a lonely outsider whose one mistake leads to a life-and-death situation. In the midst of so many trials, will Charlotte be able to maintain a spirit of thankfulness? Will she even have anything to be thankful for?
