Christmas In My Hometown / Holiday For Love
6 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This wonderful movie is available through Amazon. Use the title Holiday For Love. That's where I got mine. It's one of my very favorites! Melissa Gilbert is so believable in this movie. It's one of her best - and she has a long list of great movies!! She's one of my favorite actresses of all time. Michelle Tractenberg (plays her daughter, Noel) is also absolutely great. What a natural little actress she was at the time this movie was made. She was in Ice Princess a few years ago. She's grown up and is still a beautiful and accomplished actress. If you haven't seen this movie, get a copy right away. I'm sure it will be one of your favorites, too! C. Rutherford
