Must See Movie
5 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very touching and beautiful story of how tragic events were turned into an ever lasting love. I would highly recommend this move to everyone especially those who love and care for animals. This movie has inspired me and given me hope that there are still good and caring people in this world that can be so harsh at time. It was so beautiful to watch how after all Donna had suffered and lost she still had the love in her heart to care again. I cried many a tear while watching Susie's Hope both sorrow and joy. This is one of those movies that you will watch many times over. I loved the fact that an entire town was brought together and gave of their hearts. This is definitely a must see movie that you will never forget.
