Did You Know?

January Jones is actually 10 months older than Katherine Heigl, who plays her step-mother.See more »
Continuity: 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 »
Marty Davis:My goodness, you make him sound like a fictional hero from one of your novels.
Missie Davis:Grant is educated and handsome, attentive. He's travelled all over for his job and seen places I've only read about.
Marty Davis:Just remember that God has written His own story for you and it's not the feelings of your heart that it should be based upon but rather the thoughts of your heart that you need to hear. That inner voice that tells you that this man will care for you no matter what, that he'll still want to kiss you when you're old and gray. Tend to you when you're sick. Honor you.

Touching, powerful and moving..., 1 September 2008
Author: ihavenotthecourage from United States

Michael Landon Jr., you've done it again! I viewed this movie with a friend expecting The Dumpies, but I was PLEASANTLY surprised! I can't remember enjoying a movie so much since Bambi was released on VHS! This is definitely a film that will be added to my "For A Good Watch" only shelf! MAJOR props to all the superb actors! Note: If you like movies filled with all the nasty gore and foul language, then this is definitely NOT for you! This movie is for people with higher standards and more cultured tastes. I am not even an old, Mennonite mom trying to preach, I'm just stating the facts... and trying to make this review ten lines long........
