Loves Unending Legacy
The screen version of the acclaimed fiction series “Love Comes Softly” continues. Two years have passed since the tragic death of Missie LaHaye’s husband Willie. Unable to work the land on her own, Missie (Erin Cottrell) and son Maddie leave Tettsford Junction for the security of her father’s ranch and the hope of a new life. Dale Midkiff and Victor Browne also star in this touching story of faith and love.
This is a nicely directed Hallmark Channel presentation which moves along at a steady pace. Erin Cottrell once again plays Missie, and this film has her attempting to move on with her life following the death of her sheriff husband Willie. Cottrell does a fine job, playing a character who can be kind and sweet, but tough when she needs to be.
When she decides to adopt a fourteen-year-old girl, the transition is difficult, especially when the girl sees that another family is mistreating her brother, whom the family adopted. Missie attempts to prove the boy is being mistreated, and at the same time she attempts to fight her feelings for the town sheriff, Sheriff Zach. This film is wholesome entertainment.
