DVD Release June 7th

Based on a novel by the same name written by Irene Brand

REVIEW: The setting of this movie is Valentine, Nebraska. Most of the movie is shot on a huge ranch. The cinematography was amazing. The Main character Kennedy Blaine inherits a working ranch after her father passes. The only stipulation in the will was that Kennedy had to go to the ranch before she sold it. Kennedy had heard her parents talk fondly of the ranch they referred to as home.

Kennedy puts her plans to take the bar exam on hold and heads to Valentine the place her parents ran away from in order to get married. They never returned. Kennedy is very surprised at what she finds and understands why her parents called this place home. Being in Valentine makes her more determined to reconnect with family. First on her list to see is her grandfather, Gabriel Morgan. She wanted to know why he never reached out to her or her family. There were no calls, letters! Nothing! Why?

Sparks fly; not in a good way when Kennedy and Derek Sterling meet. He thinks she is trespassing and doesn’t feel any better about her when she tells him that she was thinking of selling the place. Derek loved the ranch he didn’t understand why she’d want to sell it. She says it’s because it’s losing money. He shows her evidence that will prove him right! Kennedy is getting conflicting information about the profits and loss for the past four years. She’s going to investigate this.

While she does that Derek’s past catches up with him and threatens to destroy everything he’s worked hard for and holds dear to his heart! Will Kennedy get the answers she’s searching for? Will she find peace, love and family in Valentine? This is a story of forgiveness and new beginnings!

This is a beautiful, engaging film that’s well shot and acted. It was an added bonus to see Lindsay Wagner (“Bionic Woman”) and Ed Asner (Up, “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”). It’s a family the whole family can watch!
