It was a little predictable, and sappy, but I found it to be gentle and easy to watch. I say 'easy' because it did not have heavy topics or scenes that could make you uncomfortable, especially if you were watching it with a child. Michael Landon, Jr. directs this film in a style similar to his fathers. He is careful when shooting the office 'tart' so that we get the idea without really having to 'see' everything. I especially enjoyed the shots of the Amish families ... I would have liked to see more of that. If you are a fan of Beverly Lewis then you will love this movie. The only thing that I didn't find real was the relationship between Sarah and her boyfriend. At one point he seems upset with her taking on the children but then he seems later to be for it and yet I did not see a transition into that.
