‘Love’s Enduring Promise’ ~ CFDb Movie Review & Recommendation
The second heartwarming movie in Janette Oke’s Love Comes Softly saga.
A pioneering clan struggles to stay together, for the family, for the land, and for the promise of the future—amid life’s adversities…
Based on Janette Oke’s best-selling novel, this poignant sequel to Love Comes Softly will draw you in from beginning to end. Missie Davis (January Jones) is devoted equally to teaching school and doing her fair share on the farm. When a handsome railroad heir (Mackenzie Astin) starts to woo her, Missie is nearly swept off her feet. That is, until a mysterious stranger (Logan Bartholomew) with a troubled past shows up. Torn between two very different men, Missie learns what is truly important in this inspiring film that the whole family will enjoy.
The second in the ‘Love Comes Softly’ series, this one is about Missy grown up and having to make a choice between 2 men. There were a few things I really liked about this one:
- Love’s enduring promise – when all suffering is gone – no more tears – the promise of Eternal life.
- We are so quick to judge when maybe there was a good reason for why someone did or didn’t do something.
- Never despise meager beginnings
- Nature is sometimes like walking through one of God’s paintings
- We are not to go by our feelings, but our thoughts!
- Adversity is something to get through together.
The cast in this one –
Clark and Marty Davis
Missy (Clark’s daughter with Ellen, his wife before Marty)
Aaron Luke (9 years old) (Marty’s son from her first husband)
Arnie (7 years old) (Clark & Marty’s son)
Willie Nate LaHaye (just coming into the picture)
The cast can get confusing so I’ll try and keep it clear in the reviews on each one.
Another great one – they all are great!
