Based on the novel by Belva Plain, covering a time span from 1909 to 1959. The story begins in New York's Lower East Side with the arrival of Polish-Jewish immigrant Anna (Lesley Ann Warren). At first employed as a humble seamstress, Anna is whisked into a whole new world when she becomes the wife of the enterprising Joseph Friedman (Armand Assante), who eventually becomes a wealthy Westchester contractor. Even so, Anna's heart belongs to Paul Lerner (Ian Shane), the son of the prosperous Fifth Avenue family which employs her relatives. In 1918, Anna gives birth to Paul's daughter, allowing Joseph to believe that he is the father. The secret surrounding Anna's child will lead to a daunting and frequently heartbreaking chain of events, culminating decades later in the newly formed state of Israel, where Anna's grandson Eric hopes to "find himself" -- and ends up finding more than he bargained for.

Just a few words about Evergreen (1985)I picked up
Hi, I'm June, English born (Liverpool) living in Copenhagen Denmark. I happened to pick up the video Evergreen, when I saw it included Ian Mcshane. I had already fallen in love with him during his series Lovejoy. Evergreen was a great story, and kept me on the edge of my seat. Ian was at his most handsome, and played the part so well. As mini series go, I feel that this is the best I have seen. It has also been aired on Danish television, when I made sure I could see it again, and introduced some new fans to the Wonderful Ian Mcshane. Lovejoy is at present being shown here in Denmark, and never miss an episode.This brought back memories of the most enjoyable Evergreen, and would love to find a copy of it. Kind Regards.
