Devotion is the word for Daniel's Daughter ***
17 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Appealing television film where a woman, engaged to an older man, finds sudden love when her estranged father dies and she returns to the town of her birth to scatter his ashes.

Angered over the fact that her father never came back to her, after the death of her mother, the embittered young woman returns to show that she is the better person than he is.

While in this small Massachusetts town, she finds romance as well as her friend, married to a man consumed by weather reports, and her dad's friends feuding.

This is a story of 2 people falling in love and the realization that life is more than just working.
