Storyline

Two brothers - one virtuous, one feckless - are in love with the same woman. She falls for Brother Wrong, carrying a torch for him even after he deserts her. But Brother Right remains steadfast and available. What's unusual here is why the bad brother pulls his disappearing act. Mark walks out on wife Dianne after learning that the baby they're expecting has severe genetic abnormalities. Dianne is nonetheless determined to bear her child, with support from her mother and Mark's brother David, a pediatrician whose love for Dianne is unspoken but obvious. How do they cope with the challenges of raising this little girl named Julia? Written by Terry Kelleher <people.com>

Great Novel Adaption
20 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

Wow! This movie was just amazing! I went out and bought the book the next day! I couldn't believe a cheesy movie of the week could be this good. The movie is honest, heart warming and truthful about the ignorance of people and the mistakes we make. We not only are left to think "Did Dianne make the right choices in the movie?" but also think "Why would I do in her situation? Should she have had Julia? Would i react the same as her husband did? Is it wrong to date your brother in law? Should Julia's doctor really have been her uncle? What should be done with abusive boyfriends and alcoholics? Great movie! Buy it when Hallmark releases the video!
