Wonderful Movie! (Now read the Book!), 17 February 2004
Author: Dayna from Texas

I was really looking forward to seeing this movie since I have read the book...twice! I love Janette Oke novels! The "Love Comes Softly" novel is part of a series, so you can continue on with Missie's life, etc.

Sometimes a movie just doesn't do justice to the book, but this one does!!! I was not disappointed at all! The heartbreak and grief that losing a loved one brings is revealed very well in this film. Best of all, the film shows how sometimes a marriage of convenience or out of necessity can be a real blessing. It teaches all of us who live in this day and age that love does not always start off with bursting fireworks or burning passion. As the film portrays...sometimes love just comes softly. :)

To the actors Dale Midkiff, Katherine Heigl, Skye McCole Bartusiak and to Director/Producer Michael Landon, Jr... Great job!!! 10/10
