Storyline

Jealousy eats at Louise. Like Esau, Louise is a twin, a few minutes older than Caroline, who, like Jacob, is the family favorite. Blond, pretty, with a voice like an angel, Caroline is selfish. Louise is plain, brunette, unappreciated, and hard-working, crabbing and oystering on the Chesapeake Bay island where they live, the money she earns paying for Caroline's voice lessons. In her seventeenth year, between the Christmases of 1941 and 1942, with the help of an old sea captain who's fought his own demons of bitterness and anger, Louise must get past her jealousy and figure out what it is she wants, what it is that she loves.

Excellent mini version of the book!
1 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed the movie! I read "Jacob Have I Loved" in high school and still find myself relating to Louise. This movie did a job well done portraying Caroline as a selfish, beautiful lady, while Louise is the better of the two when it comes to what is important in a person, they're character and heart. Some people who have read the book might not like what they've done with the movie, but you have to remember that this is only an TV movie, 53 minutes long. The producers have taken the important elements of the book (the birth of the twins, Louise's friendship with Call, Caroloine leaving the island, Louise's relationship with the Captain)and turned into an enjoyable movie I would show in my classroom if we were reading the book! The only problem I had was at the end of the movie they did not say of whatever happened to Louise, but I guess to find out you need to read the book!
