A heartwarming Christmas tale about the power of family, tradition, and love.
Owen Thomas, a poor Welsh coal miner, falls in love with Jessica, a beautiful London actress. He builds her a cottage in his village and enchants her with the promises of the holidays they’ll share after they marry and move to Wales, where Christmas trees are decorated outside where they can look up to God. He carves her an angel to go on top of this majestic tree – with lavender eyes like hers, a token more meaningful to her than any engagement ring.
When Jessica breaks off their romance, Owen, brokenhearted, brings the Christmas angel to a new shore when he emigrates to America.There she’ll reign over five generations, looking down over peacetime and wars, joy and sorrow, reminding all who see her that Christmas is the time when families and sweethearts can come together, laughter and goodwill can lighten even the heaviest of hardships, and magic fills the earth. A time when even a Christmas angel ornament, made out of good Welsh wood and the hopes and dreams of generations, may one day return home again.
