Description from www.IMDb.com: A young woman on her way to a new life in the 1800’s suddenly finds herself a widow. Now she must live with a recently widowed young man and his daughter. Can any of them find love again?
Wife: For our last movie review, I wanted to choose a movie about marriage. Husband suggested War of the Roses. Really? A cynical movie about divorce? I don’t think so. Instead, he agreed to review Love Comes Softly. Directed by Michael Landon, Jr., this is one of my favorite movies. I have secretly wanted to own the entire series and I am not a movie collector. What do I love about it? It is clean, engaging, sweet, and faith-based. And, it’s a love story! Kathryn Heigl is excellent as usual. My husband teases me about this movie. He calls it “Love dies a slow and agonizing death.” Yes, he is both cynical and funny.
Husband: I liked the storyline. The male lead was a good man. He was God-fearing and had the correct priorities. He was patient and he waited. There were no explosions so I only gave it a 5.
Husband-Wife Compatibility: 7.5 (Wife gave it a 10)
