Another addition to the, Love comes softly series...
16 December 2012 | by anjeluSee all my reviews

This movie, although I am sure was made with good intentions, turned out to be a huge fail. With a great storyline.. and what could have been a wonderful cast, the acting, and direction turned out to be an epic failure. I find it hard to believe that the director was... satisfied with the portrayal or the characters. I found the Christian values worth while, and the "message" had a target of going directly to heart but, with the poor delivery, and acting.. the movie bored me to sleep. It was all I could do to force myself to stay awake. I always feel badly about writing a low review however, in this case... someone had too. I will not hold this movie against the past movies..
