I saw a book at work with this same title, I would suspect the movie must be based on it. Is this movie about frontier era/ pioneer times in America? Thats what the book seemed to be about.

Sorry, Sherrie, I didn't see your posting earlier.
Yes, the movie is about pioneer times in America. So, I think the movie is based on the book.
Who wrote the book?

Love,

Yes ... it's the story about a young girl (Lucy Whipple) growing up in California during the 1800's. Meat plays one of the men digging for gold. In the beginning she doesn't like him .. but soon they gain each other's respect, and become friends :) It's a very good, family oriented movie,
and Glenn Close does an excellent job playing the young girl's mother.
If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it :up: :))

Thanks, Diane.
I saw the book just two minutes ago by www.amazon.de
It is also available in the German language. It is a book for teens (and I think for adults with a young heart, too) :D
Maybe I will buy the book. Because the movie IS very good.
Love,
Eva
