Interviewed on the set of the movie in Atlanta, Jennifer Love Hewitt the Lost Valentine described as “one of the greatest love stories I’ve ever read.” She continued: “It speaks to an older generation. It speaks to a younger generation. The portrait of the incredible love between the character of Betty and her husband Neil in the 1940s, and the portrait of my character fall in love with their little son–. I mean, these two lines of the story comes to meet without effort”

Betty White said she joined the project because she had always wanted to appear in a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie. She also liked the story. “If you had the chance in real life to live a deep and loving as Caroline and Neil, she says,” Well, maybe you want to see him again.
