When Cully Stewart died, his family were devastated. For without Cully’s steadfast spirit, Meg, his wife, and their children all found that life was much more difficult. Meg, lonely and distraught, struggled to keep the family afloat through her sewing business. Then larger-than-life Vincent McQueen, Cully’s cousin, appeared and made Meg think there might indeed be life after Cully. The children were less convinced by Vincent, but soon they had other thoughts to occupy their minds. The Stewart family soldier on, gradually learning that love, in its many different guises, is undoubtedly the sweetest thing.
