Storyline

Martha and Jed Richards live in Oregon in 1862. They and their two daughters moved there to make a new life, but the daughters died of cholera along the way. This has left Martha an emotional wreck, and she is unable to move on with her life. That is until an orphan named Danny comes to live with them. Jed immediately accepts Danny as his son, but Martha is still too upset to be able to love him. As time passes, however, she finds herself more and more able to accept him as part of the family.

Seasons of the Heart
5 December 2011 | by kristinaresillySee all my reviews

I am a mother who is grieving. I have had two young children die within a short amount of time. In watching the movie, I saw many of Martha's struggles and feelings in my own life. My oldest daughter and I watched this movie together. I have to say, this is the most realistic movie on grieving that I have ever seen and I highly recommend it for families that have lost a child/children. We were able to discuss the movie together and it helped give me a tool to show her that what we have felt, and things we have been through are normal and there is hope for our future. I was able to talk about God with her in a very realistic way about real life things. I am going to encourage my husband and my other daughters to watch this movie. I am also going to encourage my mom, my dad, and my own sisters to watch as well. I think this is a movie that can bring healing if watched at the right time in the grieving process.
