Not the usual romance
This movie is more real than most Hallmark movies. It is about what real people do in weak moments or when they have given and given but felt like they were betrayed. These are not perfect people, and some might argue (reviewers have argued) that they are not very nice people. That's the point. The point is not to criticize their flaws but to see what could be, what might be, maybe what should be.
There's a scene late in the movie where Abby makes a mistake that really isn't all her fault. All the repairing of the relationship seems to fall apart and that's reality too.
This isn't the most entertaining Hallmark movie I've seen, but the story is totally unlike 99% of their stories. The subject matter makes it worth watching through to the end.
Karen Kingsbury writes a lot of Christian stories and there are references to God in this movie but they are not overpowering or particularly preachy at least in terms of religion. There is some preaching in terms of fidelity and family.
