Possibly one of my favorite movies. I like good clean movies (or as clean as you can get nowadays). Love's Unfolding Dream was really quite clean. A man has a leg amputated not show on screen (although I think you see a little of the leg with the infection before hand) he also eventually dies; a young girl needs surgery, but nothing is shown. 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 all ages.
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.
Belinda dreams of a career in medicine, but the town doctor doesn't agree. He thinks a woman should get married. Her medical expertise (that she has learned through books since most medical collages won't accept women) is put to the test wehn she nurses a Boston socialite, Mrs. Stafford Smith, back to health after a stroke. There tempers very often get the better of them, but Mrs. Smith eventually gets to know Belinda better and wants to help her achieve her dream and offers to pay for medical school. Drew, an attorney who came to town to sell his deceased uncle's farm, changes his way of thinking about women and encourages Belinda in her dream. As he falls in love with Belinda, she must decide if it's possible to be in love and follow your dreams. Meanwhile, Missy is enjoying her life with her new husband Zach, the town sheriff, and their two sons (Maddie, from her first marriage; and Jacob who is Belinda's brother). She also insists on interfering with a neighboring family by teaching the mother how to read, by offering her a job helping out at the school.
Overall, I really love this move and will definitely watch it over and over again.
