A new family has moved to Sparrow Island, and Bobby MacDonald makes a friend his own age. But something about the new boy's story doesn't add up. The boy's grandmother acts reclusive and protective. His father lands a job at the hospital, but his expertise seems far too advanced for a physician's assistant. Abby wants to welcome the family to the island, but are they in some kind of trouble? Meanwhile, Abby's niece, Nancy, and her children surprise everyone with a visit. But to Abby's keen eye, Nancy is hiding something. With love and persistence, she gets to the truth and helps them all find new beginnings.
