Cities scare Maggie McGilligan, so does change. But Welcome is Maggie’s town, her own beloved small-town, USA. Maggie realizes that some change is inevitable now that her widowed mother, Mara, is about to marry Bartholomew Britt, a rugged carpenter from the Yukon. But when Mara and Bartholomew inform her that they might have to sell her home and refuge, Tara, the floor of Maggie’s world begins to tilt. While remodeling Tara, they arrange for Maggie to stay with Bartholomew’s sister, a well-known painter who lives-in Paris! Not only that, she’s a nun!

New friends and mysterious happenings unfold for Maggie as she catches the rhythm of life happening . . . a long way from Welcome.
