“St. Ignatius, the founder of the Jesuits, felt that ingratitude was the greatest of sins. The quirky characters who gather around the Thanksgiving table at the Sleeping Inn help each other learn the true meaning of gratitude. As they face their struggles, they teach each other — and us — to be grateful for life’s many blessings. It’s easy to give thanks for this timeless, heartwarming, and inspiring tale of fathers and sons and the strangers in their lives who become our friends.”
