10 Movies Like Love Comes Softly (2003)

Marty Claridge, played by Katherine Heigl, and her husband, Aaron Claridge, played by Oliver Macready, had recently relocated to the West Coast. Still, Aaron is killed in a riding accident shortly after the transfer. Marty is pregnant with her late husband’s child and needs a place to stay through the winter because she has nowhere else to go.

She is so desperate that she agrees to the proposal made by Clark Davis, a widower (Dale Midkiff). Clark makes the generous offer to provide her with a place to stay for the winter and to pay for her travel on the wagon train that will take them back to the East in the spring. In exchange, Marty says he will marry Clark and be an excellent mother to his daughter Missie when she is a little older (Skye McCole Bartusiak). They live in separate locations because the marriage exists only on paper.

At first, it is not an ideal arrangement for any of them, and Missie resents Marty for trying to encourage more feminine behavior from her even though she is mourning the loss of her mother, who, as Missie tells Marty, “was the prettiest thing you’ve ever seen, everybody said so.” Marty is attempting to encourage more feminine behavior from Missie. As the winter wears on, Marty acquires more knowledge about “Clark’s God” than she could have ever imagined, and a love attachment forms between her and Missie, which enables them to start feeling more like a family than they did before.

Both Marty and Clark eventually experience the epiphany that they have accomplished something that they previously considered to be impossible: they have rekindled their love for one another. Missie has begun reading Marty’s books on her journey toward self-improvement and individuation. She has also discovered a new loving mother in the stranger who has just arrived, and Marty’s child is fortunate to have a great new father.
