Positively delightful family tale in the tradition of "Anne of Green Gables." Great, uplifting fun for everyone. .

    1. Jacob Witting: My wife died six years ago.. I hope you don't expect--
    2. Sarah Wheaton: It's alright, Mr. Whitting, I didn't come here for love.
    3. Jacob Witting: What I meant is that the house is not in perfect order.. I didn't ask for love.
