Summary
  • Boys Town: The story of Father Flanagan, the founder of Boys Town, and his battle to save boys who had been thrown away by society. When a rebellious boy comes to stay, Father Flanagan must save not only him, but Boys Town itself
  • A Christmas carol: The timeworn Dickens' story about the old merchant Scrooge and how his own disappointments in life shape his view that both life and men are not worthy of his notice or concern
  • Christmas in Connecticut: In her 'Smart Housekeeping' column, Elizabeth Lane provides festive recipes and homemaking hints. But Elizabeth's got a secret: she needs a recipe to boil water. Elizabeth has no cooking skills, no Connecticut farm, no adoring hubby, and no baby-makes-three as depicted in her column. She better get them. Because Elizabeth's boss has invited himself and a recently returned war hero to her home for Christmas
  • The singing nun: With lilting melodies and an earnest sense of higher calling, Ann takes her faith where it might not otherwise go - onto the world's airwaves. Her "Dominique" becomes a smash single. But will success hinder her life of faith? To find the answer, Ann must look deep into her own heart
