This is the fifth in the Love Comes Softly series. We felt all of them were extra special.

Another wholesome family movie produced by Michael Landon, Jr. Always there are positive role models of strong Christian character. We wish there were more movies like the Love Comes Softly series in video.
A bit of a disappointment

"I have watched all of the movies since the very first one, Love Comes Softly, and fell in love with the series so much so that I bought the books to read and couldn't wait for this movie. I was very disappointed with this particular installment. This was so far away from the book that I didn't recognize it when I watched it. Other than the observations already noted (Belinda as Missie's daughter not sister, etc.), it also seems to have lost her brothers and their adopted son, Jeff. If there was only about 4 years difference between this movie and the last one, then her brothers would not have been old enough to be out on their own, yet there was no mention that they even exist. However, I am glad that they are able to keep Dale Midkiff as Clark, but think they could find a better substitute for Katherine Heigl as Marty. To kill off Willie just to give Missy a new love interest was a travesty. I gave it two stars and hope if they make the last books, they follow the books as best they can (outside of resurrecting Willie via a dream sequence)."
Enough is Enough!

"I don't like to write negative reviews, but as someone who has read the Love Comes Softly series, I feel I have to comment on this most recent movie & the movie series in general. I do appreciate Michael Landon Jr.'s production of wholesome family entertainment and I think these Love Come Softly movies have a good message. However, I think it's really unfortunate that with each movie he gets further and further away from the words that Janette Oke wrote. Kill off Willie?!
:( Janette Oke is a very good author and was the top Canadian author for sales in the late 1980's. She even outsold Margaret Atwood! I loved the Love Come Softly books. What's really sad is that the writer has borrowed the characters and titles, but has used great poetic license with the stories...so much now that they have ceased to belong to Janette Oke."
Disappointed at the changes

"I have to chime in on the other reviews about killing off Willie. He was the character that I kept looking forward to seeing in the movies and by killing him off ruined the movie. He is an excellent actor and gave me the connection I needed form the second movie. I loved the fact that he and Dale were still in it. The purpose of series are for us to be able to follow the movies and this was a disappointment. I agree with one of the reviews that said can you have him and the orginal Missy come back because someone was dreaming or had amnesia or something. Erin was not a good choice to be substitued for the orginal adult Missy. There are few choices for Family movies out there and I was hoping this one would continue as a series. We as readers and movie goers tend to get attached to the actors that play the characters. We do realize sometimes there is a time restraint but I know if you made them an offer they can't refuse they would do the series. That is up to you to make it so they will not turn the part down. Thanks."
