SEASONS OF THE HEART cover image
Captured their attention. "It shows what life was like for the pioneers." "One Christmas, the Mom was grieving over her daughters who had died. They brought her a boy who needed parents and the Mom treated hiim badly at first. The Mom didn't know what boys were like. He wasn't trying to be bad but she didn't understand that. In the end, she liked him." "I liked the piano music."
Very well done. Very poignant tale about pioneer life and family love. Good discussion starter about human relationships. Although it deals with some difficult issues, it is not graphic. It offers a realistic look at pioneer life. It may be a too difficult to watch if a child has recently had a death in his or her family. The main characters are all Anglos and one, with Downs syndrome, is treated with respect by the community.
When Jed and Martha Richards agree to raise young, orphaned Daniel, Jed is delighted. But Matha, still grieving for her two little girls who died on the trek West, finds herself swept away each day in a thousand wistful memories. As her golden-haired daughters dance through her aching heart, she can't help comparing them to this awkward, dirty young boy who annoys her at every turn--and needs her so desperately. Jed and Danny both reach out to Martha, yet her anguish isolates her and threatens the marriage relationship. But spring sometimes comes unexpectedly, and for Martha it comes on a snowy Christmas Eve when Danny's innocent heart is finally able to rescue hers. Featuring Leigh Lombardi, Sam Hennings, Claude Akins, and Logan Hall. Based on a story by Lael J. Little. Produced by Heart Productions.
