It will premiere on the Lifetime cable channel on Monday, November 13 at 9 p.m. ET, with an additional airing on Sunday, November 19 at 6 p.m..


  1. This was a great book to read! Hopefully they make it into a great movie as well!

  2. Congrats Maureen on winning the book!

  3. The story sounds good. I wish I had read it. I always think the book is better than the movie!

  4. I have seen a few promos (the same one actually) and I am really looking forward to seeing this (if not for the fact that Kevin Sorbo is one of my favorite actors...)

  5. Oh, and I think it is fun when romance books are made into movies...although sometimes the movies are nothing like the books (for example, the movie "Rose Hill" was based on Julie Garwood's For the Roses, but had very little in common with was enjoyable though). I wonder how closely this movie will follow the book...someone who has read it will have to let us know.

  6. Have 35 of LLM novels, read 1/3, rest TBR, including 2 series Women of Primrose Creek and Sweetwater. Don't have this one so will ck my trading bookseller Mon. I'll be taping, if not watching so THANKS for heads up, Cheryl, as I missed the promos!
    Carol, I usually agree, but Black & Blue by Anna Quinland followed the book exactly except for a hopeful epilogue. Coincidence: read it a week before it aired.
    Jen, I answered phones for Hallmark Cards on 20+ Hall of Fame (HOF)presentations and boy, did we field LOTS of calls from unhappy Garwood fans for our artistic license on THAT one! Again a series in my TBR pile.
    Love anything set in a small town as we live outside one past 12 yrs.
    Wasn't Kevin Sorbo in Xena: Warrior Princess?

  7. Yes Kevin was in Xena-he was also in his own TV series in which Xena was spun off from. :)

    He also was in Andromeda..:)

  8. Okay, I watched it. Sorry to say it was predictable and even too corny for this romance lover.
