My family and I watched this movie the past week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Many Lifetime and Hallmark movies are either tearjerkers, or have a storyline that is a little hard to swallow. This one had good acting, warm hometown flavor, and moved along at a very good pace. It was over before we knew it, and we were actually wishing it would continue. It had a few tender moments, but they weren't sappy or overdone. The whole cast was excellent and I would recommend this movie to anyone out there.

This is far from the usual simple Christmas fare, much heartier and warmer, with good acting (I hardly recognized Edward Hermann!), a realistic plot (especially in today's hard times), and many wonderful laughs to be enjoyed. I went right to Amazon to buy a copy for my family. Don't miss this one; it's going to be a Christmas classic.

This movie won't disappoint you! If you only have time to watch one christmas movie or hallmark movie this year, please watch this one! The women takes her children who the father abandoned them, has no money and has to find a place to live, and finds work in a small town's cafe. This movie shows us the true meaning of Christmas, putting your faith and believing! I loved it!

.

This film presents a pleasing story of family tragedy and hope.

Martha Evans ( Kristy Swanson) and three children are abandoned by her husband. This guy is the classic case of irresponsible males. He empties their bank accounts and leaves with most of their money, deserting his wife, her two daughters and a step son, to survive on their own. Martha, who is unable to earn enough to support the family, loads up the children and moves north in hope of a better life.
.
After traveling a log distance, Martha stops at a small town, finds an inexpensive room and secures a job as a waitress in a small 24 hour café. She struggles for days, cares for the children, and makes friends. Meanwhile the children grieve the abandonment by their father and wonder if that means they are not loved and not worthy of care.

Slowly the children adjust and become a family. But their only car breaks down and the innkeeper informs her that she must move as he rented her room to a business. Desperate and without hope, Martha prays for help.

This is a feel good story. The townspeople accept Martha and her children and help her survive.

I recommend this film to people who enjoy family films.

This movie is in my library, because it is worth watching over and over, and I still shed tears at the same moments in the movie as I did the first time I saw it. Christy Swanson does an incredibly awesome job portraying a single mom of three children. The kids and the supporting cast all provide a heartwarming tale of the courage and of the ability of people to support each other when love might be the only thing they can afford. This movie should become a classic, without a doubt. It will warm and touch your heart.
