Movie Review ~ Love Begins


Clark Davis (Wes Brown) adventurous dreams of seeing the world are put into jeopardy after he and a friend start a fight which damages a local cafe. Through a plea deal with the Sheriff (Jere Burns) and café owner Millie (Nancy McKeon), Clark works off his sentence as a farmhand for the Barlow sisters, Ellen (Julie Mond) and Cassie (Abigail Mavity). Older sister Ellen doesnt understand Cassies friendly nature with Clark; she agreed to the Sheriffs offer only because the farm has become too much to maintain alone. Clark is slowing winning Ellen over, but suddenly suffers a traumatic head injury in a fall. After Ellen nurses him back to health, her former fiancé returns to win her back. Will Clark travel on or stay behind where love begins?

Love Begins still

Clark Davis - Wes Brown
Ellen Barlow - Julie Mond
Cassie Barlow - Abigail Mavity
Millie - Nancy McKeon

My Overall Thoughts:

I must explain that this is actually one of the prequels to "Love Comes Softly".  This movie portrays Clark falling in love with his first wife Ellen.

I wasn't sure how I would feel watching Clark fall in love with someone other than Marty, but I found it very charming.  Clark is much younger and didn't even seem like the same person.

I can't wait to watch the second prequel "Love's Everlasting Courage".

My Favorite Scenes(s):

Of course, the Kiss.

The dance was very sweet, also.

Watch This Movie With:

Anyone.  Friends, family, adults, children...

Other Notes:

-  I didn't read the book so I can't do a comparison.

My Rating:



Have you seen this movie or read the book?  What did you think?
