Review: Love's Everlasting Courage (Movie)

I haven't read The Love Comes Softly series by Janette Oke, but I usually like a homesteading story set in the Great Plains. Thus when 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment offered me the chance to review the movie Love's Everlasting Courage, which was inspired by Oke's books, I thought I'd give it a chance.

The story is about a young family struggling to keep their farm during a prolonged drought. The bank is threatening to call in their loans, and so Ellen Davis goes to town to work as a seamstress, despite the misgivings of her husband, Clark. Meanwhile, Clark's parents come to visit so they can lend a hand and help watch young Missy. Before long, the Davis family must come to terms with a tragedy.

Love's Everlasting Courage first aired on the Hallmark Channel last fall. Although it's fairly predictable, the movie will hold your attention thanks to stars Wes Brown, Cheryl Ladd, and Bruce Boxleitner. The scenery is pretty and the characters are likeable, but this is not an intense or deep film. Instead, Love's Everlasting Courage is a family movie with strong themes of faith, love, and friendship.

Look for this on DVD in early May, just in time for Mother's Day.

I can be such a sucker for books and/or movies about the difficult times of homesteading. I sure hope we have an easier time at Happydale! LOL

I like homesteading stories as well, and though this isn't a groundbreaking film, I think it would be an interesting one to check out. I will have to look for it. Thanks for sharing this review. I might not have ever heard of it otherwise!

I do enjoy stories like that and generally enjoy Hallmark Channel movies so this sounds like a winner to me.
