Storyline

Paul Jenks and his wife Sarah left California with their lovely son David and daughter Ivy and started a farm in his native small town. Sarah is a short-tempered vegetarian, who doesn't really fit in the agricultural community. Sandy Barlow, a drifting accountant with shaky finances, envies their family happiness, worms her way in -as she does all over town-, fails to impress him with her female charms but pretends her aunt has the same hart disease as Sarah and asks the couple to spring her the money for an operation. When they answer they don't even have that much, everything is mortgaged, she swears revenge and takes it out on the whole family. Kristen Hadley, who didn't even finish her training in Social Services, buys the story Sandy gets five locals women to co-sign about child-abuse by Sarah, so the sheriff is send to take both young children away, and not just once for a day with Paul's parents...

Good for a movie on Lifetime
19 October 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This isn't bad for a TV movie. Being a TV movie there is no real suspense, knowing all will turn out well, because that's what has to happen in a Movie of the week. The acting jobs are good. The script is good for a TV flick. If you've got nothing to do on a weekend and see this pop up on Lifetime. Sit down with a snack and enjoy a heart warming tale. 6 out of 10.
