Dappled Sunshine portrays life at its premium. Sunshine eludes the Thorne family as areas of shade smother their happiness and attempt to dampen their spirits. But hope springs eternal for every suffering soul as the Holy Spirit gives life and comfort in the most dreadful of times. The family’s joy is replenished through their contact with nature. Gradually, the Thornes’ pain is softened with new hope and with the realisation that life is indeed a journey from which one cannot escape. This enables them to continue with their hearts replenished with love and gratitude.
