Storyline

Missie three years later: being a single mother after her husband Willie was shot during a poker scuffle. She and her son Mattie move back in with her parents Clark and Marty. She finds a new home, and finds a new teaching position that she settles right into, but Missie has lost all faith in herself, until a chance encounter at her father's church where she adopts homeless orphan Belinda Marshall. Missie didn't want to adopt a child into the family, as she is already taking care of Mattie, but decides to welcome her in with open arms. Missie also finds interest in Zack Tyler, the town's sheriff. There are some subplots and incidents that mirror Missie's tragic losses, and through the experiences will she ever find a way to bring hope and joy? Written by Anonymous

can't get past the books
18 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I appreciate having decent,wholesome movies to watch, the movies based on the Janette Oke "Love Comes Softly"series are such a disappointment. I know some of the messages suggest "if you can just get past the books" you can enjoy the movies. I cannot seem to do that. I love those books and do not understand why it is so hard to make movies that align more with stories and plots in them. I know some books are hard to make into movies and need some dramatization, but I don't think these books need THAT much help. I watched the first three but by movie number four, I'm reading the back of the DVD and I'm thinking "No thank you!" It really is a shame, these could have been terrific movies.
