Newspaper columnist Peyton MacGruder is proud of three things–her immaculate VW Jetta, her status as a strong single woman, and her ability to write fast–until her editor warns that her column is failing. She is given three weeks to change either her approach or her job.
As Peyton considers her future, the unthinkable happens–PanWorld Flight 848, en route from New York to Tampa, bursts into flame and crashes in Tampa Bay. All 261 people aboard are killed. For a week Peyton and her fellow reporters cover the nation’s worst air disaster with numbed emotions, then they try to move on.
Peyton is wondering how to attract readers when a woman approaches and hands her a plastic bag that washed up behind her house. It contains a note, almost certainly from the doomed flight, with a simple message– “T–I love you. All is forgiven. Dad.” Peyton now has the perfect story to attract readers . . . and a tool to uncover lessons about love, forgiveness, and about herself.
The Note movie premiered on Dec. 8, 2007 on the Hallmark channel!
