Why do you confide in me like this? What are you and she to me? Do you think because I am poor and plain I have no feelings? I promise you... if God had gifted me with wealth and beauty, I should make it as hard for you to leave me now, as it is for me to leave you. But He did not.

I bought the DVD version of this movie on the recommendation of my wife who loved the version she saw aired in television. But the version put to DVD was a disaster. The lighting was poor to non-existent and entire scenes were simply excised. In one instance Adele is being put to bed, and we immediately cut to another scene - coming in in mid-sentence - where it's the next night. Characters such as Grace Poole and Mason are never even introduced, leaving one to wonder if they'd dozed off for a few minutes during the movie.
The DVD we saw was produced by Platinum Disc Corp and even at $6.32 it was robbery.
Be careful which version of this movie you buy! We're sending this one back.
