I love this series and have watched it on tv whenever it is on...never get tired of this delightful series. I found it much better than the books.

In every generation of this series somebody died, somebody was widowed and somebody adopted. It wasn't believable and as time goes on it gets more worldly; feminism, the name and claim it theology, made-up history is fantasy....in the first movie there's a scene where she's in the bath. It didn't have to be there. There are no "Christian" movies. There are clean-er movies but that's as far as it goes.

Excellent even for those who have read the books.

"This period movie set is about living in a time when conditions were tougher, but yet romance, love, achievement, and faith still existed--perhaps stronger than for most people of today. It is a series of exceptional stories sure to inspire as well as entertain. Hardships are felt and you will empathize with family losses, as well as feel the exuberance of success when a character achieves. It is a family oriented set true to it's name, "Love Comes Softly."
Of course, a series based on books cannot add all that can be placed into a book. If you want more quantity to these stories, pick up the book set. You will find them quite similar, but no film version can include all that an author can place in pages. Even so, this set of film stories ranks high among the family/romance/historical viewers from almost any generation. It is for Grandparents to Jr. Hi. and men or women. Of course the underlying characteristic of this series is the Christian spirit of many of the characters, and how that changes or guides the lives of the people you will meet in the stories, but the DVDs do not get preachy.
An excellent period film with a wholesome story throughout. Good FAMILY viewing, with action, suspense, drama, and some romance. The series is based on the books of Janette Oke. OK they are all Oke stories, so we all know they will each end deliciously heartwarming and acceptable. But not till we have some heroics, suspense, and fist-o-cuffs. It can't all be sweet out west.
This collection offers the complete set and a lower price and well worth the retail. DVD has English and Spanish Subtitles & captioning for the hearing impaired, or for those like us who like to catch all the names correctly.
"YES I REALLY ENJOYED WATCHING," and that comes from a man. My wife liked them too. A fantastic set to watch together."
Excellent christian series
