As so often happens, once you read the book, it is hard to accept the necessity to delete the detail that must be omitted in a two-hour movie. I am 53 and read this novel ("A Lantern in Her Hand") when I was in the 6th or 7th grade. One detail I remember: When, as children, Will Deal told our heroin to not eat "love apples" (tomatoes) because they're poisonous. That was the belief in the early days of our country, and so, this brought a ring of reality to the story. Such details had to be omitted, of course. The novel stayed with me so long, that I recognized this movie immediately when I started to view it. I highly recommend it to anyone. This is not a "chick flick" but rather a timeless tribute to our pioneers, male and female, and the hardships that strengthened their bonds and their resolve. Bravo to Hollywood for a movie with true substance, and not one special effect!!!!!
