Description

The Magic of Ordinary Days

This Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation is set in rural Colorado in 1944.
After she becomes pregnant by a departing soldier, Livy Dune, the wealthy, pampered daughter of a Denver minister, is forced to forever abandon her hopes of becoming an archaeologist.
To shield her from further scandal, Livy's father ships her off to a remote farm and arranges her marriage with shy farmer Ray Singleton, who is struggling to live up to his proscribed responsibilities to the wartime government.
Clearly depressed by the situation, Livy does as well as she can to be polite and civil to her husband and his sister Martha, but it is clear that she'd rather be dead than married to a man she doesn't even know.
For Ray's part, he is unfailingly generous and supplicative, but the realization that Livy doesn't want him makes him feel more inadequate than ever. With almost painful slowness, the two lost souls finally come to love and cherish one another, while each one also learns to forgive themselves for their own imagined shortcomings.
