When The Heart Calls - The Dance

I just returned from our family vacation and I thought it would be nice to have a movie to watch with the family. However we had returned all our movies to the library prior to us leaving. So it was nice to find this envelop with this movie feature!

I haven't yet seen it, but I can't wait to have the time to enjoy it. I wanted to share  it with you so that you can tune in to see it and also share with me your opinions about it.

I'll watch it and share soon.

If you have already seen it, what are your thoughts?

  6. It looks like a great movie! I remember this actress from Lost. Speaking of Michael Landon my husband got to be an extra as one of the school house kids in Little House on The Prairie. He said Michael Landon was just an amazing guy.
