Love's Enduring Promise, 9 February 2005
Author: (casterman) from charlotte, NC

Just like 'Love Comes Softly' this book has nothing in common with the book except for a few names, but that is no reason to pitch either one out. Love and enjoy each separately. It's like 'Anne of Green Gables' I love the books and the movies but they aren't identical either. I love Dale Midkiff. My only disappointment was I think he looks better with shorter hair like how he looked in 'The Magnificent Seven'. (Whoa, heart, calm down, he's somebody else's husband.) ;-) Anyway...I actually felt like Michael Landon, Jr. managed to incorporate more romance in this movie than Janette Oke had in the book. In the book, Willie and Missie's romance was probably a grand total of a dozen pages out of the whole thing if that much. Mrs. Oke seemed to want to run off on rabbit trails in the book talking about people that had very little to do with the Davis'. I cared more about Missie's romance than whether a neighbor had a baby or not and whether he was right in the head or not. In the book, I thought it was cute when Willie tried to help Missie shut the window that was stuck. That would have been cute to see in the movie. It was about the only thing in the book that resembled romance. I personally prefer romance with witty banter and things that make your heart flip over and make you laugh at the same time. The Danielle Steel type of stories seem to keep the people in bed so much that if real people stayed in the bed that much they would be dehydrated into a pile of dust in a month. Of course, Logan B. was very cute. My only thing there was they seemed to be trying too hard to make him be an expert in every field, and whenever he was around everyone else was helpless, but that wasn't his fault. He was mighty cute while he was being Superman, Marcus Welby, etc. Anyway...I think this movie is definitely worth a watch. Rita If Michael Landon, Jr. is reading this, may I suggest Lori Wick's 'The Californians' series, and 'A Place Called Home' series. Lori Copeland's book 'Hope'. She is hilarious.
