Quotes

[first lines]
Maggie Sergeant: March 10, 1867. The events of this day have been extraordinary, indeed, almost frightening. I had expected to live out the rest of my days here in Indiana. Here, where I was born, was married, and gave birth to my two children. But within the week, I will never again be able to call Huntingville my home.

One of the more memorable of the ABC TV movies of the 70s
18 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A woman is forced to leave her comfy Indiana city to go to Nebraska with her family because her husband wants to farm. She faces finding out they were scammed and there is no land, a miscarriage, widowhood after they finally find a place to settle, and holding on to the place with her children. The one false note is her playing hard-to-get with an obviously smitten neighbor who is ringing her chimes as well.

Joanna Pettet is the woman, William Shatner her husband and David Janssen the man who wants to be. If you can believe this bit of casting, Lance LeGault is a friendly neighbor and totally good guy. Helen Hunt makes her acting debut as the woman's daughter. Yes it's a feminist piece since a "pioneer feminist" is who the story revolves around, but it's not preachy and is well done.
