Based on the novel by Jan Karon, the film follows Cynthia Coppersmith (MacDowell), a writer struggling with writer’s block who heads to the picture-perfect town of Mitford to settle her late uncle’s estate and hopefully find inspiration. She soon bonds with the quaint small town and Tim Kavanaugh (Mathison), the bachelor rector who also happens to be her neighbor, after they spend time together taking care of a young boy after his grandfather is hospitalized for an injury. It’s not too long before she realizes she may already be home.

The film is directed by Gary Harvey (last month’s Home for Christmas Day). Pamela Wallace and Margaret Oberman, who have each scripted several projects for Hallmark and elsewhere, wrote the adaptation. I love the pairing of Mathison and MacDowell together, and I’m glad we’re getting Mathison in another non-Christmas film while we wait to see whether we’re getting any more Murder She Baked installments. There are several books in Karon’s Mitford book series, which makes me wonder if we’ll see more of these films–no complaints at all if so. The cast is rounded out with Hallmark regulars David Lewis, Sarah Edmonson, and Ken Tremblett and newcomer Nicholas Holmes.
