Not a bad movie. Shockingly, it's actually really pretty good! Definitely the best movie I've seen on Hallmark.
Keri Russel does a fantastic job as a slightly spoiled rich girl who gets married off by her father to a poor and humble farmer. While together, she is secretly sending out letters to a former lover who's in the military that she thinks she really loves. She also keeps in touch with her equally bratty and rich sister.
At first, Russell thinks she's better and more educated than everyone else, who she can never have anything in common with. But when she catches her husband going to the library and reading about her favorite subjects, she starts to realize the simple life isn't so bad and actually starts to appreciate it, along with the local people and their kindness. She also eventually falls in love with her husband after wondering whether or not to leave him and go and live with her sister.
The acting is actually fantastic. Everyone is believable and the story is a genuinely sweet one. Sometimes it's just good to watch a movie that's simply uplifting like this.
A fantastic romantic movie the whole family can enjoy.
