Love's Abiding Joy
Source: Catholic News Service
Fourth installment in the "Love Comes Softly" series where pioneer rancher couple (Erin Cottrell and Logan Bartholomew), circa 1885, cope with financial hardships and the sudden loss of their child. The villainous mayor (John Laughlin) makes the husband the sheriff but only to manipulate him for his dastardly purposes, while thwarting the budding romance between his own daughter (Mae Whitman) and the sheriff's adopted son (Drew Tyler Bell). Michael Landon Jr. directs the leisurely tale capably; the production design, cinematography and musical score are assets, but the script and performances are bland and often anachronistically contemporary, while the faith elements, though admirable, are heavy-handed. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I -- general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
