From the Back Cover

The lives of four street orphans suddenly change when they discover an abandoned baby in the back of a wagon. Although just children themselves, these vagabonds adopt the baby, whom they name Mary Rose and become a most unlikely family. Longing for a fresh start, Adam, the eldest of the clan, inspires their migration out West where they eventually find the perfect site for the family homestead. Inspired by Julie Garwood's best-selling novel "For the Roses," Jennifer Garner (Harvest of Fire) portrays Mary Rose, a vibrant and beautiful young woman who feels restricted by her overly protective brothers. When betrayal and heartbreak loosen the powerful bond of her adoptive family, her sorrow compels Mary Rose to search for her real parents in New York. Torn between two very different ways of life, Mary Rose must make the most important decision of her young life - to find where her true home really lies.

2.0 out of 5 stars This was not the Julie Garwood book at all January 25, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I bought this movie expecting to see Garwood's book brought to life. I think the only thing the screenwriter read was the back of the book! There was no romance and it was disappointing to watch, expecting (in vain) to see the funny and interesting parts of the book. If you have read the book and loved it, dont watch this movie. If you havent read the book, expect to see an average family drama.

1.0 out of 5 stars Julie Garwood--Yes! Rosehill--Heck No! July 19, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I have read all of the reviews as well as ALL of Julie Garwood's novels. I have always admired her wit, humor and storytelling ability. With this in mind, I was VERY disapointed with "Rosehill". I did not expect that the movie would be a word-for-word account and would have no flavor of its own. There have been plenty of movies I have enjoyed based on books that took some literary license. However, this is not what Hallmark did. They took a great story that involved strong characters, an unusual family, a mysterious stranger and a lasting love story and made it into a different story entirely. The changes they made didn't make sense. Why kill Cole when he wasn't killed in the first place? There was already enough drama in the book. Why make Adam on his deathbed and married at the end of the movie when he was so adamant against getting married? Why spend five minutes putting the family together only to spend the next few hours doing everything in your power to pull them apart and succeeding? They weren't a family, they were a fluke of circumstances according to this movie. They stayed together for the "baby's" sake and nothing else. No, this is not what it was.

I understood why they changed the setting for Mary Rose's father's home from England to New York. I did not understand the need to add a brother named "Harrison"--who by the way was the name of Mary Rose's husband in the book. I understood why they took out a lot of the middle scenes, background information and even why they left out Mama Rose. But, for the life of me, I can't tell you why they made the remaining two brothers leave to search for their own fortunes at the end of the movie when they had worked the ranch not only for Mary Rose, but also as the culmination of their own dreams as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rose Hill October 16, 2003
By Gina
So sad, so bad! Readers Beware! I was vastly disapointed in this. I was hoping for that "Garwood magic" and ended up wanting to drop the video off my deck. They totally revamped a wonderful story to garbage. Yes, there was a MaryRose and 4 brothers that went west to Rose Hill and that's where they stop. There is a woman they bring along to cook that never exhisted, there was an indian woman ( I think these 2 were to take Crazy Corey's place). They add a cattle rustler for a love intrest. Cole dies. and there is this Irishman that also didn't exhist.Where Is Maryrose's husband? And MaryRose never goes off to school which is the big part of the story. Where is Mama Rose?? we never get a letter. She is a big part of the story. And Adam marries the Indian woman...Huh? Where'd the story go.. Please don't do a sequel. Take my advice catch it on the Hallmark channel instead of wasting money on this. They missed the stagecoach folks!

1.0 out of 5 stars awful awful awful September 25, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
There was no SPUNK! "For the Roses" is one of my favorite books, and boy was I excited to find in my local video store. What a waste of 90 minutes. There was none of the charm, none of the humor (except for a couple of chuckles), and zero romance!! There was no frustration that came with the Elliot family, no drop dead gorgeous man to sweep Mary Rose off her feet, and couldn't they have found a better Mary Rose? Mary Rose with a short little guy like Fergus?? COME ON! And where was Adam's elegance, and Cole's heart, and Travis's sweetness, and Doug's maturity? As a movie, even without the book, it was terrible. It left alot out and wasn't much better than a summary of the book (an inaccurate summary at that).
I have never been more aggravated with a movie.

When I saw the movie Rose Hill was an adaptation of one of my favorite author's book, I was very excited to watch it. I should have skipped it. The only thing they got right was the make up of the family. Two of the main characters from the book are killed off in the movie but Julie actually wrote separate stories for them. It has been a while since I read the book but who the heck is Fergus. I don't remember him from the book but the movie implies that he ends up with Mary Rose. Look, I understand that when a book is adapted into a movie there will be some artistic license taken, such as the deletion of minor characters or the addition of others; but when you totally change the main characters and what happens to them, you are not taking artistic license, you are telling a story that is totally different from the original. Give me a break. The people who made Rose Hill need to talk to the people who adapted the John Grisham books into movies. I watched some of those movies before reading the books and vice versa and although artistic license was taken, the movies pretty much stayed true to the books. I don't know how Julie Garwood could have put her name on this movie because it was no where near the wonderful story she wrote. Didn't she read the screenplay before she agreed to this movie. I hope, if she agrees to have another one of her books adapted into a movie, she ensures that the movie comes somewhere close to resembling the book in someway or form, such has having the main characters who are suppose be alive stay alive and having them marry characters that were actually in the books.
