Millions adored Daphne Fields, for she shared their passion, their pain, their joy, and their sorrow. America's most popular novelist remained a closed book. She hides many secrets. The husband and daughter she lost in a fire. The son who barely survived it and would be deaf forever. The victories, the defeats, the challenges of facing life as a woman alone and helping her son meet the challenges of his handicap. A strong woman, she would not accept defeat, or help from anyone- until she found she could no longer face it alone. Written by
Although they never appeared on-screen together, Barry Bostwick (Dr. Dane) and Rex Smith (Jeffrey Fields) have an unusual thing in common: they both played Danny Zuko in the original Broadway production of "Grease". See more »
Daphne is not a lucky woman-she is widowed in a fire that also kills her young daughter.Pregnant at the time the son she gives birth to is profoundly deaf Luckily she has literary gifts and she is able to make a career for herself as a novelist.She reflects on her life as she lies in a hospital bed having been struck by a car-her somewhat obsessive care for her son,a dalliance with a Hollywood star and the love of stalwart Doctor Dane,the specialist on deafness and whom her son loves
It crawls to a bland and predictable climax with only a slightly arch turn from Duncan Regehr as the selfish but charming star Justin Wakefield to enliven proceedings
Romantic tosh that may satisfy those who have read Ms Steel's novels but leave the cynics unconverted
