This is a beautiful tv movie back when they regularly made beautiful tv movies. It is about a widower of two children who meets a single business woman and how they get married. What distinguishes this is a loving, realistic look at loss, marriage, and people being able to go on with their lives. The movie is called Jane's House, Jane being the dead wife. She is almost a character in the movie, represented by her beautiful, warm home which becomes a home of conflict as the children do not take well to a new mom. Most of all, the music is great and so is Anne Archer's performance of an interesting, beautiful woman who unexpectedly falls in love and the sacrifices she makes to help her husband move on with living. Over all, extremely well done.
