Love Finds a Home


Love Finds a Home:

This is the Eighth Movie of the "Love Comes Softly" Book turned Movie Series. The books are originally written by Christian author, Janette Oke and brought to the Movie format originally by Michael Landon, Jr. (The son of Michael Landon - Pa from Little House on the Prairie.) However, this story was directed by David S. Cass, Sr.


Sarah Jones ... Belinda
Haylie Duff ... Annie
Jordan Bridges ... Lee
Courtney Halverson ... Lillian
Michael Trevino ... Joshua
Patty Duke ... Mary


from Hallmark-

The story continues of Belinda (Sarah Jones), a rare female doctor working in a quaint Missouri town. When her longtime friend and colleague, Annie (Haylie Duff), arrives so that Belinda can watch over her in the last stages of her pregnancy, Annie brings along her mother-in-law, Mary (Patty Duke), a seen-it-all nursemaid whose homeopathic remedies and folksy wisdom are at odds with Belinda’s scientific knowledge.

As Belinda deals with the headaches Mary is causing, she must also address issues at home. While her adopted daughter discovers the joys and pains of a first love, Belinda and her husband (Jordan Bridges) find their own relationship is suffering over Belinda’s inability to get pregnant. Just as the town learned to put its faith in Belinda as their doctor, so too must Belinda learn to accept that the best guidance for her own problems may come from unlikely sources.

Movie Review:

This is reported to be - the last movie in the Love Comes Softly Movie Series. I really enjoyed this movie, however I did notice that this movie held no ties back to the other movies. In all the other movies, either Clark Davis or his daughter, Missie Davis, made an appearance. I missed them in this one, yet it was full of plenty of drama and sweet moments of love and family.

I enjoyed it very much. Patty Duke was full of spirit and spunk! She was a great addition to the movie series. I loved her character! And... they did a nice job casting the role of Lillian... the little orphan girl, who is now grown up... and is the adopted daughter of Lee and Belinda. She had the same pretty red hair and fair skin of the little girl who played the role in the previous film. It was also sweet to see Lillian's relationship with Joshua develop throughout the movie.

Cautions: There is a small cave in - in an old abandoned mine. Lillian is hurt, but is rescued and is fine. Belinda's friend, Annie, has great difficulty during delivery, but Dr. Belinda and Annie's Mid-wife Mother-in-Law, Mary, help her deliver a healthy baby.

Another wonderful Family Film.
