After yet another heartbreak, Natasha is flying home for Christmas to Ballyclare, the beautiful old house in the Wicklow hills that's been a constant all her life.

She's hoping for family solace, but her mother and sister have their own troubles. Doon is dreading her upcoming wedding to the perfect man, and their mother Aileen is still grieving their father Dan, who disappeared over twenty years ago.

Worse still, Aileen has terrible news for the sisters: the house is literally falling down, and will have to be sold.

But when a stranger with a family connection to the house knocks on their door, their fortunes start to take a turn.

With snow on the hills and magic in the air, is there a chance all three women might lose their hearts this Christmas - and keep their home?
