Movie Info

A well-meaning but self-centered newspaper columnist learns the importance of placing career before family when her sister dies and she brings her late sibling's five Amish-raised children to live with her in the big city. There was a time when Sarah Cain was one of the city's best-known writers, but these days she seems to have lost her touch. When Sarah's sister Ivy dies and the writer is suddenly saddled with five children who aren't accustomed to city life, her editor urges her to document the unique experience in her column. As a result, Sarah once again finds the success that has eluded her for so long - but her time in the spotlight yields some unexpected consequences. When the children find out that Sarah has exploiting the situation to bolster her readership, they feel so devastated and betrayed that they demand to be placed with a new foster family. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

  • ...will probably find a welcome reception among the nominal "family values" audience, but they deserve "nice" and "decent" movies that offer more engaging and challenging fare than this...

    I wasn't expecting this to be so good. I only saw this because I was curious about films made about the Amish. Maybe it's just me, but this was a tearjerker and a pretty good family film. The acting is not that great of course, but that's mostly forgiving for the heartfelt message this story portrays. I know that is not a film for everyone and some may find it passable because of the subject matter but I really did feel that it was worth watching.

    With a Title like that you would think this is a chick film, but you like me would be wrong. Its pure family. Good Christian Family Film at That. At the age of 14 I had the pleasure of spending the summer living with a Amish Family, some things I saw in this film I don't remember their doing, so I question if all of the movies actions were authentic. The movie has a wonderful ending, bring out the Kleenex. 4 1/2 stars. The youngest of the Amish Actors female gets 5 stars. Get it and add it to your collection.

    I thought this was a pretty good movie. Better than your average made for TV movie. I thought it had potential to be a little deeper,but very good none the less.

    I'm fascinated by the Amish culture. This movie was a so-so story about orphaned Amish children having to adapt to our culture.
