With the holidays drawing near, Charlotte is starting to feel the pinch of having three extra mouths to feed. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and a cooking demonstration—plus a little nudging from her good friends—inspires Charlotte to start a pie-baking business to bring in some extra income during this busy time of year.

In the midst of so many trials, will Charlotte be able to maintain a spirit of thankfulness? Will she even have anything to be thankful for?
