Tom Everett Scott,
A pregnant Dr. Annie Watson is going to stay with her best friend, Dr. Belinda Owens while her husband Peter is off on a surveying job. Annie's mother-in-law Mary, a seen-it-all midwife whose homeopathic remedies and folksy wisdom are at odds with Belinda's scientific knowledge, comes along. As Belinda deals with the headaches Mary is causing, she must also address issues at home. While her adopted daughter Lillian, discovers the joys and pains of first love, Belinda and her husband Lee, find their own relationship suffering over Belinda's inability to get pregnant. Just as the town learned to put its faith in Belinda as their doctor, Belinda must learn to accept that the best guidance for her own problems may come from unlikely sources. Annie gives birth to a daughter, Melinda (Lindy), and the movie ends with Mary hopping into a buggy to leave and Belinda whispering something in her ear. When her husband asks what she said, the answer is: "Oh, I just told her that I'll need a midwife... Written by

Love Finds A Home...Be It Ever So Humble, This is Heartwarming ***1/2
Sequel to "Love Finds A Wing," this is a very nicely done film.
In the sequel, Lillian has been adopted and it's several years later. Annie, married and pregnant, visits her fellow doctor friend,Dr. Owen, who desperately wants a baby, but seems unable to become pregnant.
Lillian finds a love interest, an assistant to her adoptive dad, the latter has become quite overprotective.
Patty Duke, who at 63, is starting to look her age appears as Annie's mother-in-law, a mid-wife set in her ideas. The film is of value since both Duke and Doc Owen come to understand and tolerate each other. At times, Ms. Duke looks like Irene Ryan portraying Granny Clampett in the old Beverly Hillbillies television show. Nevertheless, Duke turns in a very good performance as a spunky lady.
The movie is also a good one as it avoids violence and ends in a way that we will be ready for part 3.
