The right story at the right time
28 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

This miniseries bought a change in my life. I grabbed for the book, which is even more involved and recognized the life I had chosen at the age of 20. I recognized so many women I knew and my stand out performer is Colleen Dewhurst. Lee is perfect in the lead and Patty Duke is just brilliant as the woman who totally loses everything. I would love to get my hands on a copy of the DVD. I had my daughters' read the novel, which they totally got.

For anyone who was raised in the 40's to the 60's it will bring back memories good and bad. There is a thread of too much feminism but this can be overlooked for what the story is really telling us about a moth meta morphing into a butterfly.
