The pacing is a bit slow, and the references to faith at first seem a little heavy-handed, but the movie comes together as you warm up to the characters.

Although wholesome and simple in its storytelling, the central characters are on such a pedestal of virtue that it's impossible to relate to them in any way.

The stop-and-start pacing indicates careful planning for the easy insertion of commercials. And few of the actors look entirely at home in the period setting.

The movie, based on the novel by Janette Oke, shows how time and belief can help deal with tragedies. These solutions, however, when applied to the LaHayes' particular tragedy, make for a stagnantly morose plot.

Love's Abiding Joy isn't even a film. It's a Hallmark TV movie -- literally -- one that will be shown for free on TV in December.

The acting borders on melodrama and the movie obviously was edited for TV.
