Storyline

Forever Love is a poignant new television movie about a woman who awakens from a 20-year-long coma and begins her life all over again. In the drama, suggested by a true story, Lizzie and Alex Brooks are a fairy tale young couple, wildly in love and the parents of a little girl, Emma. Then, without warning, 24-year-old Lizzie suffers a stoke. At the hospital, doctors tell Alex that his young wife has slipped into a deep coma and there is nothing to do but wait to see if she comes out of it. Alex, determined to keep his vow to love Lizzie in sickness and in health, decides to bring her home and take care of her. Alex is helped and consoled by Gail, Lizzie's best friend. Gail not only offers a loving friendship to Alex, she fills in for Lizzie with young Emma as well. When Gail's husband is killed in a car crash, Alex, Gail and Emma form a de facto family unit of their own until, 20 years after her stroke, Lizzie wakes up. Miraculously, Lizzie is pronounced perfectly healthy and begins ... Written by Anonymous

We love Reba, but OH, that voice!
8 April 1999 | by (Jacksonville, TX) – See all my reviews

This was a truly moving film--not terribly predictable even though the story has been done before. The one negative comment I have to make is this: as much talent as Reba has as an actress, I don't believe anyone else could get away with that speaking voice! Reba is so well-known for her singing, but that same voice, when speaking, is deep and grating. We put up with it because it is Reba, but like I said, no one else could get away with it. Also, in the story, they claim she grew up in San Diego. With that Okie accent? See the film, but listen with a "grain of salt".
