Devout Wild West farmer Clark Davis works his tail off to provide for his wife, sons Aaron and Arnie and daughter Missie. When his doted, equally devoted oldest son Aaron is startled, Clark, who was chopping firewood, accidentally hits his leg with an ax. He had bled to death if wandering youngster Nate hadn't found them, brought them home and taken care of the farm, way above the kids' ability. Gratefull Clark offers Nate an indefinite farmhand job, all the more interesting as Missy and he take to each-other, but she's also courted by classy railroad surveyor. Once recovered, Clark works out Nate is really Willie, the son of local grump Zeke, who left years ago after his kid brother Mattie's tragical death. Decision time arrives for both families.

In the goodbye scene where Missy looked at the ribbon Willie gave back to her, you'll see Willie's hand in the corner of the screen. His hand shouldn't be there because he had already left the room. See more »
When I first saw Love Comes Softly, I quickly ranked it high up on my mental list of favorite movies. I purposefully watch it whenever I see if listed, which now totals about 10 times. I just saw Love's Enduring Promise for the first time recently, and now have another movie to add to my list. This sequel did not let me down. Thankfully, the same Clark and Marty were cast for this movie, as well as Willie. I suppose it wasn't reasonable to cast the same Missie, due to her age. But January Jones' portrayal soon made me forget any disappointment I may have had. I realize these movies are carried on the Hallmark channel, which thankfully seems to have kept ethics and principals in tact, but I believe they could have been shown on any leading network and still would have drawn lots of viewers with positive feedback. I hope everyone of all ages takes the time to watch these movies. I found myself getting so absorbed in Enduring Promise, just as I did in Comes Softly, that I "became" a part of that time in my mind. What different times those were! I intend to watch them again and again!
