Possibly one of my favorite movies. I like good clean movies (or as clean as you can get nowadays). Love's Unending Legacy was really, really clean. A girl kicks a man; a boy has an accident and a little blood is seen on his arm; a horse which shatters its leg has to be shot but it is heard not seen; a girl fights with boy at school; a woman dreams about her husband's violent death but it's not graphic, you only hear a gut shot; there is also talk about a man being abusive to a child. Most people would skip it because they think it is too predictable or "lame", but I like movies like that because I know I will be watching something that won't make me feel like I have just been "slimed". The Dove Foundation gave it a five star and approved it for ages 12 and older.
I don't like the entire series, several are a little boring and it seems that Janette Oke has a thing with killing off the husbands and having the women remarry. So I only watch certain ones. Love Begins first (since is covers how the "Love Comes Softly" saga began), second is Love Comes Softly, third is Love's Enduring Promise, fourth is Love's Unending Legacy, and 5th is Love's Unfolding Dream. They are all amazing, really clean, high morals, family friendly, inspiring, and focuses on the more important things in life.
Two years have passed since the tragic death of Missie LaHaye's husband Willie. Unable to work the land on her own, Missie and son Maddie leave there home to go back to her father's ranch. She becomes a school teacher again and tries to start a new life, even though she still has nightmares about her husband's death. An orphan train comes to town and even though she is determined not to take one in, something makes take in a fourteen year old girl who no ones else wants. The transition is difficult, especially when the girl sees that another family is mistreating her brother, whom the family adopted. Missie attempts to prove the boy is being mistreated, and at the same time she attempts to fight her feelings for the town sheriff, Zach.
Overall, I really love this move and will definitely watch it over and over again.
