Quotes

Jacob Witting: I love you, Sarah. There are some things that can't be written... in a letter. I'm not good with words.
Sarah Witting: You're fine with words. I never thought you'd come. I dreamed about it at night when the sea sounded like wind through the grasses.

User Reviews

More of the same, very nice.
28 December 2003 | by gazzo-2See all my reviews

These stories reminded me of Little House, Lois Lenski's books and the Waltons some. All very good, wholesome, w/ the emphasis on family, farm and the like.

If you liked the first one, you will like this one-again fine reserved performances by Close and Walken(nice to see him doing this esp), the kids are believable, the filming all done on location. It's great to see the usual hazards-fires, barnraising, drought, separation, etc trotted out and done w/ some conviction.

*** do check it out.
