Product Description

Based on the book from award-winning author Janette Oke comes the next chapter of the Love series and introduces audiences to the new generation when Missie's daughter Belinda struggles with her dreams of becoming a doctor and her feelings for a newcomer in town.

Amazon.com

Another generation of spunky pioneer women wrestles with love and life in Love's Unfolding Dream, the sixth in a series of movies based on the Christian romance novels of Janette Oke. Belinda (Scout Taylor-Compton), the adopted daughter of Missy and Zach Tyler (Erin Cottrell and Victor Browne of Love's Unending Legacy), aspires to become a doctor--but though the local doctor needs an assistant, he believes women should stay in the home. As Belinda fights this prejudice, a young law student named Drew (Patrick Levis) comes to her frontier town and soon sparks Belinda's heart. Meanwhile, Missy fights to help a woman whose husband is threatened by his wife's increasing education. Love's Unfolding Dream, like the other movies in this series that began with Love Comes Softly, follows the successful formula of good-looking young people frolicking in a tidy pioneer fantasy (even a moment of gruesome surgery doesn't have a spot of blood), combining wholesome romance, religious values, and homespun feminism. The storytelling is brisk and efficient, the performances comfortable and earnest; Compton, in a role that's 180 degree turn from her starring turn in the 2007 version of Halloween, makes a charming heroine. Fans will find Love's Unfolding Dream as satisfying as the rest of the series (though some lovers of Oke's novels may be dismayed that this movie, like some of the others, alters the book's original storyline). Also featuring Robert Pine (CHiPs) as the cantankerous country doctor. --Bret Fetzer

I have watched this and all of the other movies in this extraordinary series. They are all very family oriented, have no profanity and violence kept to a minimum. My young grand children can view these movies as they present a view of family, faith and loyalty as few others do. The characters and acting is superb. I recommend this and others in the Love Comes Softly series to anyone desiring good, clean, healthy, viewer friendy entertainment. Thank you Hallmark for your continued excellence in presenting family movies.

There are now six films in the "Love" series, Love's Unfolding Dream being the only one to capture the power and passion of the original movie "love Comes Softly". In Love's Enduring Promise, there was a triangle romance. Grant Thomas, as everyone but Missy could see from the beginning, was a spoiled rich kid looking for a sophisticated Mrs. to complete his image, so there was nothing but to wait and see how Willie would end up stealing her heart. Another actress replaced January Jones as Missy in the next movie, Love's Long Journey. The chemistry between the lead actors was not the same, and attempts to restore romance by giving Jeff a girlfriend in Love's Abiding Joy still left something to be desired. Then a widowed Missy re-married in Love's Unending Legacy, but Zac is a bland character, despite being very handsom. Finally in the sixth film we have the same elements as in the first: two driven young people with integrity and strong minds, colliding as the winds of destiny toss their hearts together, changing, being changed . . . The whole series is good, but Softly and Unfolding are great.

There is no doubt that the Love Comes Softly movie series are very well done and wonderfully enjoyable. The only thing that bothers me is that there are so many discrepancies between the books and the movies. Important characters are cut, children that belong to Marty are attached to Missy, and other important areas of the story are left out. The movies as a whole or in part are excellent family entertainment, but anyone that has read and reread the books needs to be prepared for a totally different series which only resembles the original book series.

Okay my wife and I fell hook line and sinker for the "Love Comes Softly" Series. No nudity, no extreme violence, no profanity and definitely a Christian influence inserted but not overbearing or a desire to convert you. We had collected from $2 to $4 locally, used, 1-5 and then #7 and one of the two prequels. We hit a dead end on #6 and #8 and the other prequel - so we're turning to Amazon to complete our series "collection" with those we don't have.

This sixth installment is done in the overall style and "atmosphere" as it's five predecessors. Missie's (Erin Cottrell) adopted daughter, Belinda, desires to become a doctor and is overall the main focus (and the setup for the seventh movie.) Belinda is portrayed extremely well by the beautiful and enthusiastic Scout Taylor-Compton. She starts with the local doctor whom grudgingly gives her a chance to work with a very wealthy and elderly female stroke victim from back east - Boston. And (par for the times) the doctor as well as others think a doctors job is one for the men only. Belinda also starts getting to assist the doctor and by the movie's end has earned his respect and endorsement to become a doctor.

The wealthy woman overcomes the effects of her stroke with Belinda's dedicated and persistent daily "physical therapy", so to speak. So much so that she becomes an admirer and supporter of Belinda's passionate desire to be a doctor. She graciously "rewards" Belinda with an offer to go to Boston and pay her entire tuition and expenses to become a doctor. Belinda's mother and grandmother and grandfather (Dale Midkiff - for the last time) all are here - yet you sense and can clearly see their roles becoming increasingly diminished.

Another great movie from the books of Janette Oke. I have seen all 10 of her movies, there all excellent.We need more movies like these, no language, violence.Just a couple of hours of good entertainment. They speak of Family, Faith,Romance. Your whole family can watch. Plus kids can find out what the hardships were to being a pioneer in the those days.
