Daytime Emmy® Award Winner Genie Francis (TV's "General Hospital") returns as advice columnist Peyton MacGruder in a new film inspired by Angela Hunt's unforgettable characters. A romantic getaway for Peyton and husband King Danville (Ted McGinley) takes an unexpected detour when an infant is abandoned at their doorstep, transforming them into temporary parents. Petyon is reminded of her secret past and relies on her journalistic instincts to uncover the baby's story in this all-new tale of hope, inspiration and second chances.
Reporter-turned-author Peyton MacGruder (Genie Francis) and her new husband King Danville (Ted McGinley) return to the screen for a third installment in the films based on Angela Hunt's The Note
novels, this time to discover that an infant has been dropped on their doorstep with a simple note begging them to care for the child. Ever the compassionate woman, Peyton overcomes her initial reluctance to get involved with the infant boy. She not only agrees to care for him temporarily, but begins her own search to find the child's mother (Laci Mailey) and solve the mystery of what extraordinary circumstances must have led this mother to abandon her child on the doorstep of a complete stranger. As the story unfolds, viewers discover that Peyton once gave her own child up for adoption, a decision that many years later still causes her shame. Peyton's sleuthing skills serve her well, and what she discovers is a young woman who's made some very tough decisions in impossible conditions. Peyton also discovers that she still has a personal yearning to be a mother, an idea that is initially unfathomable to her husband, who's more focused on a relaxing retirement in the not-too-distant future. As Peyton struggles with her conflicting desires to be a mother, do what's best for the infant, and help the child's mother, she not only dramatically changes the direction of the young mother's and child's lives, but of her own life and marriage. In this story of second chances, the real lessons learned are that there's always hope and that actions speak louder than words. --Tami Horiuchi
