Written and directed by Michael Landon Jr, or Michael Landon's son, not especially my favorite in this series of Christian films, it is filled with depressing scenes and has for a change a real villain, a town rich guy who likes to lend people money only to take their farms when hard times come and they can't pay back.
Due to those hard times, a farm owner's wife stops being a teacher and he has to become a sheriff and forced to do the will of the wealthy family in the town.
One of a series of westerns, or more appropriately, just plain old melodramas set in the latter 1800's in the plains states most probably. Some are set in the midwest, Sikeston Missouri to be exact.
Like the Little House TV series made by his father Michael Landon, this Love Comes Softly series was made by his son, junior. It has much the same tone as the Little House television show, making much of interelationships in hard times.
Not a bad film and worth watching at least once. Not a curse word in the entire script, just a slow, methodical march to the end.
