This is the final installment of the Love comes softly series and while completely different to the book we do see Belinda again and her friend Annie who has come to stay for a visit and is expecting her first child. Due to some issues her mother in law, Mary turns up. Belinda and Mary clash over Annie and how she should manage her pregnancy. We also see a new apprentice come into town who takes a shine to Belinda's daughter Lillian. I really enjoyed the story and how it unfolded. I would love to see more in the series.
This is the latest in the "Love Comes Softly" DVD series, which is only very, very loosely based on the books by the same name by Janette Oke. There really is no comparison and both are as enjoyable as each other while being nothing alike. In this film, we continue the story of Doctor Belinda, now married and struggling with an inability to conceive.The drama intensifies when her good friend Annie comes to stay before the birth of her first child. With her comes Mary. What a delight it is to see a mature Patty Duke again after all these years. She plays an experienced midwife and conflict arises between her tried and true, old fashioned ways and Belinda's new fangled educated ways. The resulting humor and drama, along with a budding romance for Belinda's adopted daughter, make for a very entertaining film.
