One Week

One Week (DVD)

Ben Tyler discovers he has stage four cancer 3 months before his wedding. He impulsively buys a vintage motorcycle and travels from Toronto to Vancouver. In his search for the meaning of life, he impacts the lives of others.

This movie is a lovely homage to Canada. The beautiful landscape & the fantastic music make this movie memorable. I found "One Week" a nice surprise. I highly recommend this hidden gem.

An Amish Christmas

An Amish Christmas
by Cynthia Keller

Follow Meg Hobart and her family as they go from being rich and successful in Charlotte, North Carolina to being penniless and homeless, brought on by her husband's bad decisions and lies.

Forced to go live with Meg's parents, they head north with only the shirts on their backs, when a frightening twist of fate forces the Hobarts to take refuge with a kind Amish family in Pennsylvania.

I highly recommend this holiday story, where forgiveness, hard work, and the power of love overcome a desperate situation.
