Alaskan adventure
16 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot about a sheltered widowed American woman who remarries and moves to the outer reaches of Alaska in search of gold turned into an exciting learning and growing experience for her. She becomes pregnant and decides that she must move back to the lower states for the safety of her older son. Her son becomes lost and the stepfather goes in search of him, but he is severely injured in an earthquake after finding the boy and can't get back to the mother. She is also severely injured by the earthquake, pregnant and alone until the following spring after she delivers her baby alone. This is the story of courage and survival where she learns how capable she truly is. This movie was excellent. The acting by all was great, the story realistic, the settings beautiful. The plot was exciting and didn't lag. I enjoyed this movie from beginning to end and would recommend it especially on a cold winter's eve.
