The Country Girl

At the end of your life you ought to be happy with how you did things - Dylan

Brad Rowe and Elisa Donovan in Your Love Never Fails (2011) (aka: A Valentine's Date)

Laura (Elisa Donovan) manages to juggle being a single mum to her 9 year-old daughter Kelsey (Kirstin Dorn) as well as her high powered job as an executive in the city. And whilst Kelsey would love to see her father more than a couple of times a year she loves her life and her friends in the city. That all changes when Kelsey's father Dylan (Brad Rowe) goes to court in his native Texas to gain more custody rights leading to Laura and Kelsey returning home to her father, Jack's (Tom Skerritt), ranch whilst Laura tries to deal with things in court. Forced to spend time at home, small town charms start to rub off on Laura as well as her estranged husband who is clearly a changed man.

Shown on Hallmark Movies & Mystery I would have to say that there isn't really much mystery to "Your Love Never Fails" as it unsurprisingly reworks the whole city girl storyline heading back home, in this case to rural Texas, where old feelings are rekindled. Now in fairness in some of these made for TV movies the rekindling is with a former high school boyfriend where this one sees an estranged married couple challenging each other over custody of their daughter who find they still have feelings for each other. But the over all feeling which "Your Love Never Fails" delivers is one of easy to watch romantic fun which doesn't challenge the audience because in the end it is familiar.

The things is that whilst familiar "Your Love Never Fails" works because it delivers that slice of ranch life which is almost fantasy like where every day is sunny and everyone is friendly. On top of that you have a cast of familiar faces from Elisa Donovan and Brad Rowe to Victoria Pratt and John Schneider. And it is the familiarity of the cast and their likeable nature which contributes to that overall sense of being just a pleasant easy to watch drama, the sort of thing which is perfect for sleepy Sunday afternoons.

What this all boils down to is that "Your Love Never Fails" doesn't tread any new ground when it comes to storyline but delivers all the inoffensive likeability which fans of Hallmark movies watch them for.
