Devout, wild west farmer, Clark Davis, works his tail off to provide for his wife, sons Aaron and Arnie, and daughter Missie. When his doted upon, equally devoted oldest son Aaron is startled, Clark, who was chopping firewood, accidentally hits his leg with an ax. He would have bled to death if wandering youngster Nate hadn't found them, brought them home and taken care of the farm, way above the kids' ability. Grateful Clark offers Nate an indefinite farmhand job, all the more interesting as Missy and he take to each other, but she's also courted by classy railroad surveyor. Once recovered, Clark realizes Nate is really Willie, the son of local grump, Zeke, who left years ago after his kid brother Mattie's tragical death. Decision time arrives for both families.Written by
In the goodbye scene where Missy looked at the ribbon Willie gave back to her, you'll see Willie's hand in the corner of the screen. His hand shouldn't be there because he had already left the room. See more »
Just like 'Love Comes Softly' this book has nothing in common with the book except for a few names, but that is no reason to pitch either one out. Love and enjoy each separately. It's like 'Anne of Green Gables' I love the books and the movies but they aren't identical either. I love Dale Midkiff. My only disappointment was I think he looks better with shorter hair like how he looked in 'The Magnificent Seven'. (Whoa, heart, calm down, he's somebody else's husband.) ;-) Anyway...I actually felt like Michael Landon, Jr. managed to incorporate more romance in this movie than Janette Oke had in the book. In the book, Willie and Missie's romance was probably a grand total of a dozen pages out of the whole thing if that much. Mrs. Oke seemed to want to run off on rabbit trails in the book talking about people that had very little to do with the Davis'. I cared more about Missie's romance than whether a neighbor had a baby or not and whether he was right in the head or not. In the book, I thought it was cute when Willie tried to help Missie shut the window that was stuck. That would have been cute to see in the movie. It was about the only thing in the book that resembled romance. I personally prefer romance with witty banter and things that make your heart flip over and make you laugh at the same time. The Danielle Steel type of stories seem to keep the people in bed so much that if real people stayed in the bed that much they would be dehydrated into a pile of dust in a month. Of course, Logan B. was very cute. My only thing there was they seemed to be trying too hard to make him be an expert in every field, and whenever he was around everyone else was helpless, but that wasn't his fault. He was mighty cute while he was being Superman, Marcus Welby, etc. Anyway...I think this movie is definitely worth a watch. Rita If Michael Landon, Jr. is reading this, may I suggest Lori Wick's 'The Californians' series, and 'A Place Called Home' series. Lori Copeland's book 'Hope'. She is hilarious.
