I Love Janette Oke Movies/Books
8 January 2012 | by (Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

As far as I'm concerned I hope Hallmark Channel continues to turn Janette Oke Books into Movies! I only pray the Love Saga would go on for eternity..... These movies are Warm and Heartfelt, much like Little House on the Prairie. *Michael Landon Jr. directs a few of the episodes and beautifully. Although I do agree that some times the the acting/directing in a couple of the episodes (Love Takes Wing and Love Finds a Home) might be a tad sub par, but the message is still there and that's what matters to me. A majority of the episodes are well acted as well as executed. Much like Little House on the Prairie which I also love. *Michael Landon Jr. directs a few of the episodes and beautifully I might add. I will continue to watch till the end of time!!!!!! No matter how it's been Directed, Produced, Acted and even if it's Cheesy or Not! Janette Oke represents 'LOVE' Beautifully and Eloquently and that's what I count on and it warms my heart. :)
