Breath Taking
10 May 2004 | by (Nixa, MO) – See all my reviews

It's refreshing to see a movie like Love Comes Softly. I sat at the edge of my bed at midnight watching as this beautiful story unfolded. The commercial were driving me crazy. I just couldn't wait to see the next scene. Hoping that she would see this wonderful God fearing man before her, loving her. I was in tears as she walked away from love so stubbornly. But as in life, God has his own timing and love won in the end. I wish more movies of this nature would be release to the movie theaters. Who'd every think you could pull off such a wonderful love story and have no sex involved? I applaud the film makers and the author for making a movie so griping and inspirational that I walked away with smile on my face.
