The latest movie in the Love Comes Softly series is a bit of a twist in plot line. In previous movies, it was often the husbands that passed away, leaving the women to raise the children and take care of the homestead. The wife/mom passes away in this movie, so if you're looking for a film that doesn't make your mom cry, you might want to save watching this for the day after Mother's Day.
Even though I knew the plot ahead of time from reading the books and seeing the previous films, it still made me feel empathy for the characters. (The story of Clark and Ellen is a prequel to the first movie, Love Comes Softly, so if you like sequencing, you might want to start with Love Begins and work your way forward) The acting was very compelling and it showed how family leans on each other's strength in the midst of tragedy. Just because it's a great gift for mom doesn't mean that it's not a film for the whole family. Even my husband enjoys watching this with me. It has great family values and messages.
