Initially set in fictional Barrowsville, New York, this serial tells the story of extremely disparate siblings: long-suffering Vanessa Dale and her bitchy sister Meg. After Meg was written out of the series in the late 50's, the serial's setting moved to Rosehill, New York, where Van settled down with college professor Bruce Sterling and endured the usual soap opera maladies (murder, amnesia, incurable illness). In 1974, writers resurrected the character of Meg, as the serial once again focused on the internecine struggles between two sisters. Written by

When CBS decided to cancel the series in late 1979, the series' producers decided not to resolve all the story lines. This was done in part because the producers claimed there simply wasn't enough time to re-write proper conclusions for all the story lines. Another reason was that the producers were hoping that another network would pickup the series, but this was not the case. Consequently, the final airing of the series, ended on a cliffhanger that was never resolved. Longtime fans were shocked and outraged that the story lines were left unresolved. See more »

Sorry to disagree w/ the previous reviewer,but I loved this soap! I began watching it in the 1950's,when I was a small child & it was on for 15 min.,either preceded by,or followed by,"The Secret Storm"(I can't remember which),also only 15 min. at that time.I could only watch it during school vacations.Then,in 1969,when I was pregnant w/ my 1st child & had left my job,I began watching it full-time.This is the ONLY soap I ever watched.I dipped into others,but they never caught my attention.I moved to England in 1973,where I still live,so never found out how the plot lines continued.Maybe,it went down hill after I moved,but for the 4 yrs. I watched it full-time,I thought it was great.I especially loved Gene & Toni Bull Bua and I bought Gene's LP entitled "Love of Life",which is excellent--I still play it!By the way,how did the previous reviewer know about "Crossroads"?
