I love this movie.It is so realistic. It is not exactly like the Janette Oke book, but similar. After 2 years of marriage, Missie and Willie have arrived at the land where they are to establish a home/ranch. While Willie goes off to find some ranchhands, Missie befriends her Native American neighbor Miriam who is a blessing from God b/c Missie is pregnant and w/out a doctor around. The story also focuses upon these 3 mysterious men who seem to be gangsters. Later on they discover that there is money hidden somehwere on Misse and Willie's ranch. They hold everyone hostage while searching out for the money. How will Missie and Willie handle this? Well just watch it and you'll find out!

If you have read the book there are TONS of differences. The first half of the book focuses upon their journey on the trail while in the movie they have arrived at their destination within the first 10 minutes. Missie gave birth in a little city Willie left her at in the book and she names the baby Nathan not Matthew like she did in the movie. And Miriram does not exist in the book. The little boy who they adopted, and the 3 gangsters were not present in the book either I believe. To me they made most of the movie's plot up, while keeping some elements from the book--God's faithfulness, love, and I love the last line from the movie Missie says--"To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven."

All in all I reccommend the movie to fans of the Little House on the Praire series and the Love Comes Softly book series by the amazing Janette Oke. Go read the book if you never had...it is truly beautiful. Love's Abiding Joy, the 4th book in the series is in the works right now of being produced into a movie. It will premiere later this year and I am looking very forward to it!

Again this was very touching and I loved it, i have never seen anything like it, I love the story line and how all of the movies connect in a way with each other. Missie takes a journey with her husband to find a way for themselves that they can do it. I would recommend this to everyone.

"Out of the three Love Comes Softly movies made, this one is my most favorite. Very touching, but most inaccurate from the original book by Jannette Oke. Neitherless I enjoyed it!

"For Everything There is a Season"
Alejandra Vernon | Long Beach, California | 04/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Based on Jeanette Oke's "Love Comes Softly" series, which has sold over 30 million copies, "Love's Long Journey" is the 3rd installment, and is a charming period piece about Missie and Willie LaHaye, going west to start a ranch, build a home, and have a family of their own. This is mellow filmmaking, with a peaceful ambiance, and an occasional dramatic sequence. A Christian theme flows through the plot line, and the film makes excellent family viewing. Those who are used to "blow 'em up" fare will find the film slow, others will find it refreshing.

Missy is a gentle woman, and also a natural tomboy, who knows how to shoot a lot better than she can make an edible biscuit, but she learns how to cook from an older cowhand (Frank McRae, endearing as Cookie), and her toughness comes in handy when dealing with some unsavory characters.

Directed by Michael Landon Jr., who also had a hand in the script, the cast is wonderful, with Erin Cottrell as Missy, and Logan Bartholomew as Willie, with John Savage as leader of a trio of bad guys, and Graham Phillips delightful as the young boy Jeff. Irene Bedard is exceptionally beautiful as the LaHaye's Native American neighbor, Miriam. Shot on location in some scenic locations like Big Sky Ranch in Ventura County, California, the cinematography by Brian Shanley is lovely, with endless panoramas and a feeling of how life was in a past era.

"Love's Long Jouney" is an above average television production, and I'm looking forward to the next film in the series, "Love's Abiding Joy," which is presently in post-production. As Missy quotes from Ecclesiastes in the film, "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven," and the saga of this family is heartwarming as well as fine entertainment.

"This is the 3rd movie in the Love Comes Softly series. It is absolutely wonderful. Every time any of the movies are on the Hallmark channel, my husband and I drop everything to watch them. I highly recommend all three movies. They are heart-warming stories that make you feel good inside."
