Absorbing and heart warming
2 January 2000 | by Monika-5See all my reviews

This was a very good movie, MUCH better than the usual Sunday night made for TV fare. The story was very absorbing, and Meredith Monroe was absolutely charming as Laura. (She also has an uncanny resemblance to Melissa Gilbert, who played Laura on the TV show in the 70s and 80s.) The acting and scenery and costuming were all great. I give it 5 stars.
