This period piece motion picture portrays the unique and heartfelt story of Pamela Bucklin from her birth in 1969 to her wedding day in 1991. When her mother dies at birth, Pamela is raised by her father, Wayne. He makes a commitment to pray with his daughter each and every night. He also raises her with a very high standard of purity before marriage. In an age when purity is scoffed at by the world, and even in some Christian circles, this movie presents the message with inspiration and perspective. Also, the prayerful commitment of Wayne Bucklin is an example for all who are in a parental role. Written by ChristianFilms.com

As is usual with these kind of films the production values are not quite the standard of a major studio and that has to be taken into consideration when reviewing these film. The cast is pretty amateurish, but attractive. The lead, Serena Orrego, gives a good account of herself though all things considered, could have a future in mainstream films.

The message of abstinence is a given with Christian media and I wouldn't even argue the viewpoint, only that one should realize that in this complex world of our's not everyone will opt for that. We have to be ready to deal with those that don't choose abstinence.

But young Pamela is not allowed to even date. She quite properly asks the question, how is she ever going to meet her intended if she never does go out?

The ending I won't reveal, but to say it's a Pollyannaish ending is to put it mildly.
