The simple told story, based on Corra Harris' biographical book, of a Methodist minister, called to a north-Georgia mountain-community in 1910 who, with his gently-bred new bride, meets the problems and crises of his circuit-riding congregation fearlessly and honestly. Written by

When the producers needed a vintage automobile for the film, they scouted in the shooting area and found Otis Mason in Westminster, South Carolina, who had restored a 1912 Overland to running condition that he had recovered from a barn. His vehicle was hired, and as no one else knew how to operate it, he appeared in the movie as the driver, with one line, "Yes, Ma'am." See more »
Charming and refreshing escape to a simpler time. Great talent.
They were simpler times, in the 19th century N. Georgia Mountains. A good portrayal of period-referenced American sentiments and sensibilities overall. A very high-profile cast performs in poetic unison against the pleasing backgrounds. A full range of human emotion is encapsulated within a smoothly flowing plot and dialogue. Hope prevails over life's challenges. Kudos to the director for capturing it all within a wonderfully coordinated conceptual frame.
