Storyline

Widowed, successful Californian sports journalist King is a great catch. His pride and joy, son David, suddenly says he's giving up baseball, and hence his scholarship. Actually he's leaving college, aspiring to go to arts school. King finds out through his lover, hearts columnist Peyton McGruder. She refuses to commit to marriage, rather concentrating on trying to catch up after finding Christine, the daughter she gave up as fickle young mother. A reader's letter inviting her to exchange stories on unconditional passion and true love sets Peyton thinking, just when King gets a dream job offer in New York. Written by KGF Vissers

two tall tales
11 November 2019 | by sandcrab277See all my reviews

Typical genie francis soap opera woven in horse manure, overflowing and spilling onto the screen ... there was zero love evoked in either of these two stories ... truly enough to cause me to wretch a few times ... i knew i recognized ted mcginley, oh wait, he's a nobody who has done nothing significant ... so why is he here ? don't waste your time on these lifetime movie failures
