"Love's Enduring Promise," the highly-anticipated sequel to "Love Comes Softly," Hallmark Channel's highest rated original movie, premieres Saturday, November 20 (9/8c). Katherine Heigl and Dale Midkiff are reunited in the Hallmark Channel Original holiday movie, joined by January Jones ("Love Actually"), Mackenzie Astin ("How to Deal") and newcomer Logan Bartholomew ("American Wedding").

The eldest child in an 1800's frontier family, Missie Davis (Jones) is a bright and beautiful elementary schoolteacher whose love for the prairie is matched only by her passion for books. When Missie encounters Grant (Astin), a handsome New England railroad executive, she feels as though she's met a hero from one of her novels. But their courtship is complicated by the appearance of "Nate" (Bartholomew), a mysterious young man who helps Missie's family in a time of need. Torn between two worlds, Missie finds herself at a crossroads, forced to choose between the love of two very different men – and two very different futures.
