Worth the wait.
22 January 2000 | by (East Texas) – See all my reviews

Family Blessings was the first Lavrle Spencer novel I read. And it's still one of my favorites. I waited a long time see the movie when my CBS affiliate finally decided to show it. At first I wasn't sure Lynda Carter was right for the female lead. But as I watched, I realized she did a great job. The story was a good one. Older woman/younger man love story. I found it funny that the woman's male family member's were more excepting of the relationship than the female members. I can understand the daughter's disdain, since she had a thing for the young man, herself. The woman's mother was just concerned for herself and how it would affect her status in the town. The movie showed that no matter what other people think, love conquers all.
