Love Begins - the prequel to "Love Comes Softly"

My absolute favorite movies are those from the "Love Comes Softly" series that air on the Hallmark Channel. Over the years my husband has bought me the DVD's and believe me they get watched over and over again.
They are THAT good!

Well, who knew that there was a prequel to those??
Not me!
This weekend I was feeling miserable with headaches that just wouldn't go away. So instead of stitching (as I had planned) I ended up on the couch or in bed watching tv and sleeping.
While flipping through the channels I found this new series, "Love Begins" that tells the story of Clark Davis and his life prior to Love Comes Softly. It's his tale of love with his first wife, Ellen (The mother of little Missy). 
Clark and his friend are passing through Trinity on their way to find gold in California. They find themselves in a bit of trouble but Clark does the right thing by staying and working off his debt. He works it off by helping Ellen and her little sister to repair their farm. Slowly Ellen and Clark fall in love and eventually get married.
If you missed it last night you can catch it again on October 1st at 7p.m EST or 6p.m. Central.
It will be followed by the newest episode "Love's Everlasting Courage" which will tell how the family deals with the hardships that a terrible drought brings and the death of Ellen due to scarlet fever.

Thank you for telling us about this! I love that series too and didn't know about the prequel! Hmm...Oct 1st is my daughter's wedding date, but they are getting married at 3pm, so maybe we'll be able to have everything cleaned up and back home in time to watch it by 7pm! I should just buy the dvds when they come out since we have all the rest of them.
