Overview

Acclaimed author Janette Oke's bestselling series of books comes to life on the screen once again in this, the fourth feature following the continued Westward journey of settlers Missie and Willie Lahaye. Their roots now firmly planted as they set up homestead in the far West, Missie (Erin Cottrell begins to realize her passion for teaching as Willie (Logan Bartholomew) cares for the couple's young daughter Kathy while expanding the family ranch with a little help from sons Jeff (Dre Tyler Bell) and Matthew. When the frontier railroad comes to town, the pleasure of a long-promised visit from Missie's father Clark (Dale Midkiff) is suddenly offset by the tragic death of young Kathy. As the untimely demise of their beloved daughter begins to drive an emotional wedge between Missie and Willie, the devastated father unexpectedly accepts an offer made by the powerful Samuel Doros (John Laughlin) to assume the role of town sheriff. Their faith shaken and their once close-knit bond suddenly torn asunder, Missie and Willie desperately attempt to bring their crumbling family back together as son Jeff faces a series of dangers while hopelessly falling for Doros' beautiful daughter Colette (Mae Whitman).

The only thing this movie has in common with the book is the name of the lead characters. In no way is it truly "based" on the book. As a huge fan of Janette Oke, I am very disappointed.
