While I was in Illinois, I watched several Hallmark movies, The Thanksgiving House, was one of several that I watched.
When Mary Ross’s aunt passes away, Mary inherits her Aunt’s home in Plymouth. She soon discovers the house is not only a historic home, but a very special historic treasure. Naturally, problems ensue that must be worked out and I didn’t think Mary was the most likable protagonist I’ve ever met in fiction. In fact, in the beginning, I didn’t like the movie and it was because I didn’t like Mary Ross. However, I was glad I stayed with it because as the story progressed, Mary begins to soften. I enjoyed watching her change and become a pleasant person. This movie is a couple of years old now, but it was the first time I had ever seen it. It’s a festive movie for Thanksgiving and a light, clean romance. Overall, I enjoyed it.
