It's 1798 in the Colonial West Indies. Far from her beloved England, a new bride struggles to bring Christmas joy to her family in the wake of tragedy. Elizabeth has a house full of guests for her first Christmas as the new mistress of Ravencrest Plantation. It is her duty to create a festive atmosphere despite the challenges in her path. There is no snow, holly or mistletoe. Her husband wants turtle soup for Christmas dinner and there isn't a goose or a ham to be found on the islands to grace their table. It's too late to make a true Christmas pudding and her younger brother insists it's not Christmas without it. And her husband's behavior has her fuming as he seems determined to play pranks on her and keep her from planning a party for the household. It's the day before Christmas Eve. Can Elizabeth create a traditional English Christmas and dispel the lingering shadows at Ravencrest Plantation?
