Once in a while; a movie comes along that reminds us how powerful love can be. In the midst of war in Afghanistan; Captain Codey Cullen (John Newton; "Desperate Housewives") is touched by a lovely card sent by Faith Spelman ("The Chris Isaak Show") from the small picturesque town of Nevada City; California. As months pass; the card never leaves his side; giving him the strength to survive and setting him on a mission to find her. When Cody returns to the States; he finds himself coincidentally welcomed by her family and friends; but he remains hesitant to reveal the fateful connection that brought him to her. As a new Christmas approaches; Cody has one last opportunity to prove his courage - by taking a chance on love and finding the woman; the home; and the life he's always wanted.

It's kind of a soppy love story with a happy ending. Some will like it, some won't.
Amazingly it still brings visitors to our town 12 years later ! It's well done. Lots of local scenery.
From the very first accidental coincidence all the way to the highly anticipated conclusion, the story runs smoothly. All the "coincidences" fall into pace quite naturally and none seems contrived or fake. This is an excellent vehicle for Ed Asner in his older years. Although he isn't the star of the movie, Asner plays Luke Spelman, the pivotal character around whom the plot revolves. He leads it well. Peter Jason is great as Richard, and Lois Nettleton is Rosie Spelman, the rather "ditsy-pollyanna-ish" wife the role calls for. Ben Weber as Paul is self-absorbed and egotistic, but he is not shallow. He is merely a product of his own environment. With his first appearance, it is obvious that he will never fit into the atmosphere where his fiance, Faith Spelman, dwells. Faith herself must eventually realize that fact and change the courses of several lives. Alice Evans is Faith, a woman with her head in the right place and her heart to soon follow.
It is John Newton as Sgt. Cody Cullen, recently of Afghanistan and on R & R Leave, who steals the show, and rightly so. Only watching this movie several times (and you will !) can enable the viewer to absorb the nuances and subtleties of the script's plot development.
It is a perfect date-flick. John Newton as Cody Cullen is a man's man -- and a woman's dream.
Romantics of the world -- enjoy!!
