Quotes

Mrs. Wilson, Diana's Mother: I asked Robert to tell you to come alone so that I could talk to you. I wanted to see what sort of girl he'd so quickly decided to marry.
Ann Amour: Do you think I'll do?
Mrs. Wilson, Diana's Mother: I think you should be just what he needs. Poor Robert. Love him a great deal, my dear.
Ann Amour: Why do you say, 'poor Robert'?
Mrs. Wilson, Diana's Mother: Did I say that? He's been very much alone. He's an orphan, you know?
Ann Amour: So am I.

Pretty Slow, But A Good Story
12 July 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

It's pretty slow much of the time, but this is a decent mystery story that has enough atmosphere and suspense to hold your interest. The story starts with a young bride coming to live with her husband at "Crow Hollow", which is dominated by his three aunts, none of whom are ideal in-laws. Gradually she realizes that her situation is not just unpleasant, but hazardous. It has quite a low-budget look to it, but the characters are interesting enough, and one detail that is done well is the presence of the many crows on the family property, whose constant racket parallels the anxiety building up inside the main characters. It might have been better if the first part had moved much more quickly, because they spent a lot more time setting up everything than they did with the actual mystery. But for a low-budget mystery, it's not bad at all.
