Overview

On the day of her granddaughter's departure to California -- in the company of her rock musician boyfriend -- Elizabeth Leroy Bishop (Cheryl Ladd) tries to tell her the story of how she came to spend her life in the town of Three Rivers, and the rewards she has received from that life. We flash back to 1950, just after Elizabeth's mother died of cancer -- of college age, Elizabeth (Amy Grabow) comes home to live with her physician father (Christopher Allport), and meets the young associate pastor Ben Phillips (Brad Rowe), who is newly arrived in town. Elizabeth is heavily involved with the life of the church, and the two quickly become friends and more. Ben eventually asks Elizabeth to marry him; but first he must fulfill his obligation as a minister, to serve as an army chaplain in Korea. A series of tragedies test Elizabeth's faith over the ensuing 50 years, and just as she reaches a point of beginning to understand what she sees as God's plan for her, two unexpected events await.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Bruce Eder
This made-for-cable movie, based on a book by Jerry B. Jenkins (Left Behind, The Jesus Chronicles), is a three-handkerchief drama that overcomes most of its own limitations, mostly through its message and the sincerity of the actors involved. Cheryl Ladd's makeup as a 70-something is never close to convincing, but she tries so hard that one can forgive that flaw; and, like most movies that purport to take us into the past, everything in that past looks a lot too perfect -- perfect paint jobs on the cars, clean streets and homes, everything too neat, with no scuffs, dents, blemishes, or other signs of wear-and-tear, like the past as depicted in a theme park (see The Majestic for this same phenomenon in a theatrical feature). But the message overcomes those problems, and the performances down to the smallest supporting roles are just right. The result is a movie that is on solid enough dramatic ground so that even unbelievers will tolerate its implicit message of an active, involved God that plans for peoples' roles and lives. Additionally, the script is very good, and, in one essential attribute, successfully captures a time when serving one's community and one's fellow human beings was accepted as the norm, and not the exception. Aspects of the plot may make one think of It's A Wonderful Life, as well as Since You Went Away, but the story is presented from a standpoint designed to reach more modern viewers -- or, at least, those not rendered hopelessly cynical and detached.
