This is one of the best movies I have EVER seen!!!

This is a cute and family-friendly story, that promotes the themes of morality, love, honor, courage, faith, etc.

I saw this movie on Cable (The Hallmark station) and loved it so much that every time it would be on, i'd watch.

I saw this film on the Hallmark Channel, and TIVO'd it to watch: I have since watched it a few times and will buy the DVD when it's released! Based on a novel by Christian historical fiction writer Janette Oke, "Love Comes Softly," centers on Marty, a young woman who travels West with her husband. When tragedy strikes this newly married couple, grief-striken Marty must find a way to survive the harsh land that she is surrounded by.

For those of you worried about content: this is a family-friendly film! There is no language that I can recall, no violence, and no adult themes. There is one scene where a man accidentally walks in on a woman taking a bath (nothing is shown), some squabbling between two people, and a woman preparing a live chicken for a meal, but other than that, I could not find anything objectionable.

This is a cute and family-friendly story, that promotes the themes of morality, love, honor, courage, faith, etc.

"Love Comes Softly," based on a Janette Oke novel, is a heartwarming 19th century tale that will use up several hankies. Marty and her husband travel west, searching for the perfect place to raise a family; when her husband has a fatal accident, Marty finds herself alone, with winter coming, and with no way of getting home. She enters into a marriage of convenience, and faces many trials as she gets used to her new environment and the strangers in her life.

Katherine Heigl is lovely as Marty, and Dale Midkiff excellent as Clark, the older, strong Christian man she marries. As his daughter Missie, Skye McCole Bartusian is an exceptional little actress, and in smaller parts, Theresa Russell and Corbin Bensen are terrific as the kind of stalwart people that pioneered this nation. Written and directed by Michael Landon Jr. for Hallmark, this is a way above average film made for the small screen, with endearing characters, and spectacular scenery, shot on location in El Dorado County, California, by cinematographer James Wrenn.

A scene that is memorable is when Clark takes Marty to his "church," a bench that faces a beautiful view, and explains his faith to her. It is so well written, and truly the core of this award-winning film. Total running time is 88 minutes, and the DVD gives one the option of full screen or widescreen. A sequel was made to this story, "Love's Enduring Promise," in 2004.

"The truth of God's love is not that He allows bad things to happen; it's His promise He'll be there with us, when they do."

This was the most refreshing love story that I have seen in a very long time. I don't know when I have enjoyed a movie as much. I have viewed it 3 times and wait anxiously to see it again with my friend. The story line was just excellent, a woman who lost all her dreams and a man with such a tender heart. No sex, no violence, no cursing, just pure and refreshing. Wow. I thouroughly enjoyed this lovely film.

When I was a child, my grandmother gave me a book by Janette Oke named "Love Comes Softly". This began a shared love for her stories. When each new book came out, we would read it and call each other up so we could talk about it. We both agreed that her stories are full of memorable characters that you instantly fall in love with and relate to. When I saw this movie on the shelf at Blockbuster I almost fell over because I was so excited. When I watched it, I became even more elated. The movie is well acted and true to the book it was based on. Even more rare in films these days, it depicts the Christian faith without falling into stereotyping, prejudice or creating one-dimensional characters. My only criticism would be, it was TOO SHORT! And my only disappointment is that my grandmother is no longer on this earth to enjoy it too.

Format: DVD
Since substantive TV shows such as Christy, Little House on the Prairie and Touched by an Angel no longer exist, there aren't many options for family oriented viewing. This warm and wonderful film from Hallmark Entertainment and Faith and Values Media is a huge exception. Based on a book by Janette Oke and adapted to film by Cindy Kelley and Michael Landon Jr., who also directed, this film fills the void left on television now that the aforementioned have passed into TV heaven.

Beautifully shot by James Wren in various areas of California, it is warm and touching, and has humor as well. It seems to be nothing special for the first 15 minutes or so, but becomes much more as time goes by. Sometimes love is not fireworks, but something that comes softly, and that exact statement from this Hallmark presentation could be said to apply to the film itself. This is a film the entire family can enjoy, but it also has substance and an important message given in a quiet and unobtrusive manner.

Katherine Heigl is terrific as the young bride, Marty, heading west with her new husband to make a life. She has brought her books and dresses to remind her of the culture she is leaving behind. A world of opportunity is in front of the young couple until a tragic accident takes the life of her husband before their dreams together can be realized. Dale Midkiff is also quite good as the young widower, Clark, with a daughter in need of more than her father can provide for her. Clark strikes a bargain with the heartbroken Marty and a marriage of convenience ensues. In the spring, Marty will return to her home back east at Clark's expense.
