PLOT:


from Hallmark-

Eight years after finding new life and new love in the hometown of her father, Clark Davis (Dale Midkiff) and Missie Tyler (Erin Cottrell) must help her adopted daughter Belinda (Scout Taylor-Compton) find her own path in the Hallmark Original Movie “Love’s Unfolding Dream,” the sixth installment in the popular movie series that began in 2003 with “Love Comes Softly,”. Michael Landon, Jr. serves as co-writer and co-executive producer for the film.


Living happily in Anderson’s Corner with her adopted parents Missie and Zach Tyler (Victor Browne), Belinda Tyler has blossomed from the timid orphan in “Love’s Unending Legacy” into a confident young woman, a natural born caretaker who believes it is her purpose to serve her community as a doctor. But her resolution is tested when the town’s physician insists that women, with their need to be married and be mothers, are incompatible with a medical career. Further complicating Belinda’s life is the fact that she is falling in love with Drew Simpson (Patrick Levis), an attractive New York lawyer who expects a traditional wife and family back East. As her life is pulled in different directions, the headstrong Belinda begins to wonder if she can rely on her faith if she also follows her heart.









Movie Review:

I enjoyed this movie in the Love Comes Softly series. It was interesting how the characters intertwined and I loved the romantic story of Belinda and Drew. It was very sweet.

There are a couple intense medical scenes which may scare young children. (SPOILER:) In one scene a young girl is choking. She is saved, but there are some tense moments leading up to it. In another scene, a man's leg is amputeed, but he does not survive it. Very Sad.

I find there is always a twinge of sadness in each of these Love Comes Softly Movies. I know life was not always easy in the Pioneer - Prairie Days... so I guess they want to make it as real as possible.

In spite of those intense medical scenes - much of the rest of the movie is lighthearted and delightful. I enjoyed it and if you loved the first two movies in this series - you will love this one, too!

  2. I was wandering the same thing about the brothers not being heard of again. My family is completely wrapped up in watching the entire series, we have purchased them all. I wonder if the books tell how the boys ended up.
