Heart-warming & inspiring family-friendly movie!

"I saw this film recently on the Hallmark Channel, and TIVO'd it to watch again and again (at least, until it hits DVD, and I buy it from Amazon): I am definitely going to buy the DVD when it comes out! Based on a novel by best-selling Christian fiction write Janette Oke, "Love's Enduring Promise," is a heart-warming continuation of the story of Marty and Clark Davis...
By now, Clark's daughter Missy is all grown up and teaching at the local schoolhouse: she meets two very different men through circumstance, a young surveyor named Grant Thomas and a mysterious stranger named Nate; when a family accident forces her to accept the help of this mysterious stranger...
For those of you worried about content, this is a clean film! There is no language that I can recall; there is an arguement between father and son, some blood when a man accidentally hurts himself, and little else.
This is a wonderful, family-friendly story that promotes good values of love, honor, courage, faith, forgiveness, and much more! Highly recommended as a break from the typical Hollywood fare..."
Missie Grows Up

"Though "Love's Enduring Promise" doesn't measure up to its predecessor, "Love Comes Softy," it is nevertheless lovely to follow up on Clark Davis and his family, who share their joys and sorrows, and their faith, strength, and commitment with one another. Missie is now a young lady, with serious choices to make. She is a schoolteacher, and is being pursued by a wealthy surveyor, but when Clark suffers an accident and can no longer work the farm, a young man comes to their aid, and the viewer knows long before Missie does, that he is a better match for her.
The dialog and scene progression don't flow as well in this 2nd film, but I wouldn't mind seeing a 3rd and even 4th installment, as it is refreshing to see this type of family entertainment, where people speak without cursing, and keep their clothes on. It would make an excellent TV series, as it is full of wonderful characters, and themes of hope and redemption. Directed by Michael Landon Jr. for Hallmark, it is a little like his father's wildly successful "Little House on the Prairie." Based on a novel by Janette Oke, the 19th century plot is filmed in beautiful California locations, like Sable Ranch in Canyon County, with cinematography by Maximo Munzi.
The cast: January Jones is good as Missie, with Mackenzie Astin as Grant, her rich suitor, and Logan Bartholomew, who is an exceptionally handsome and capable actor. as Nate. Katherine Haigl repeats her role as Marty, and as Clark, Dale Midkiff once again is superb. Cliff De Young plays Zeke, an embittered man with many scars that need healing. Total running time is 87 minutes.
Another great romance

"Like its predecessor, Love Comes Softly, Love's Enduring Promise is a successfully produced romance that is clean, with morals and Christian values. Michael Landon, Jr. needs to be applauded once again for his work. He has accomplished making quality films such as this, that are inspiring and uplifting, and that can be watched by every member of the family without embarrassment!"
I think it's great!

"I first watched Love Comes Softly on Hallmark. I was enraptured by the cleanness and the costumes. Then I watched the second one, Love's Enduring Promise. Then I read the book Love Comes Softly. It was a lot different, but I liked the movie and the book both for their own "things". I would highly reccomend these movies to ANYONE. They are both clean, funny, sweet, cute, and great family movies. The acting in Love's Enduring Promise was good. Not as bad as soon movies I've seen! The cast was good, the costumes were not period-correct in Love Comes Softly, but oh well. It's squeaky clean, what more could you want?!"
