Jo Marie Rose, widowed as a young woman, is celebrating the 20th anniversary of her purchase of the Inn at Rose Harbor, a local bed-and-breakfast in the town of Cedar Cove, Washington. She has invited many of her former guests (us, the audience) to join her as she reminisces about her early days as owner of the inn. Joining Jo Marie with their own stories are her very first guests, Josh Weaver and Abby Kincaid, who, at the time, were in their early 30s. Neither, however, was eager to return to the picturesque town where each was raised, but necessity had brought them back-Josh to care for his ailing stepfather, from whom he was estranged, and Abby for her brother's wedding, though hiding a painful memory from her youth. Thus, the threesome leads us through their intriguing stories, while younger actors portray them as they were when the inn was new. This unique theatrical device of then-and-now guides the audience through a myriad of engrossing episodes, both humorous and serious, and introduces us to an array of fascinating characters who inhabit the town of Cedar Cove. Based on the novel by acclaimed author Debbie Macomber, this dramatization brings an added dimension to the esteemed author's captivating novel.
