grandma's Movie Review - Love's Christmas Journey - I'm Giving One Away!

 I'm happy for the opportunity to share with you a new movie inspired by the best-selling series of books from Janette Oke; Love's Christmas Journey! Not only do I get to tell you about this movie, but I also get to give one away!

Love's Christmas Journey
By - 20th Century Fox

Favorite Features -
  • this one DVD has two stories on it which tell the story of Ellie Davis and how even after dealing with great loss, you can trust God and move forward!
  • emphasis on what Christmas is really all about
  • all-star cast including Sean Astin (Sam in Lord of the Rings), Ernest Borgnine and more - this story has quality acting!
As Fox says, "Just in time for the holiday season, Hallmark Channel’s captivating saga returns with another touching film based on the best-selling Love Comes Softly series by Janette Oke. Centering on family values in the 19th century, the heartwarming story, LOVE’S CHRISTMAS JOURNEY, enlightens on DVD October 30 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. While still mourning the loss of her husband and daughter, recently widowed Ellie visits her brother Aaron and his children for Christmas. Ellie does her best to enjoy the holidays, even making new friends. Settling in nicely, Ellie also meets Erik, a young man abandoned by his outlaw father whom Aaron has taken in as one of his own. When Aaron travels out of town to purchase adjacent land for farming, Ellie agrees to watch his children, but the season’s festivities are threatened when Aaron goes missing."

If you are a fan of the Love Comes Softly series, this movie is sure to be one you will enjoy! If you are not familiar with the series, you are about to become a fan! The story of hope, perseverance, love, family, friendship, not judging others and what Christmas is really all about is one we all can be "fans" of! I'm happy to say, not only did Fox send me a movie to review, but they are making another available for me to give away(USA only)!
