Differences from the book series

Although this film is not based on any book, the story of Clark and Ellen is different in this film than is mentioned in the book "Love Comes Softly".


On their way to the California Gold Rush, two cowboys are arrested for getting in a fight and damaging a small-town restaurant. One escapes, but Clark Davis stays to work off his debt by fixing a farm belonging to two young women, Ellen and Cassie Barlow (not Cates). Over time, Clark and Ellen fall in love, but will Clark give up his plans of striking it rich out west for the comfort of a family and home?
