Deep down, Gabby gets involved in truly wanting to know the human feeling of extreme happiness she often sees in the people she guides, especially wanting to know the human feeling of love.

A heartwarming traditional Christmas movie
28 November 2018 | by jasminechai17See all my reviews

This movie has some of my favourite Hallmark actors, Paul Greene and Beau Bridges. I didn't know Rachel Boston, but she was very impressive as the Angel of Angel Falls. This is a very sweet and thoughtful movie and is quite a comforting, heartwarming drama, especially for people who are dealing with sadness during the holidays. This movie shows this aspect of what folks go through during Christmas when life has hit them with pain and disappointment, not just full of happy people who love Christmas like a lot of these Hallmark films portray. It is more real than most of the romantic comedies, it is more realistic in some of their subtopics. I really enjoyed the mood of this movie. The chemistry between Paul and Rachel was not extraordinary but it worked.
