Storyline

The bankrupcy of their hardware store forces Jack and Honey Bailey to move their young family to New Bedford, a small town where Jack's affluent family owns a silver mine. When Jack is killed in an accident soon after their arrival, his mother informs Honey that she is no longer welcome in the Bailey home. Knowing that she cannot support her three children on her own, Honey is forced to leave them with her mother-in-law while she looks for work in a nearby town. Set in Ontario in the 1930s, "Wind at My Back" follows Honey, her children and the Bailey family through the era known as the Great Depression. Written by Orson Wright <orwright@hotmail.com>

One terrific series!
16 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is probably one of the best TV series ever. Find it on whatever channel your area may carry it. The previous reviewer was totally correct in their review. One interesting thing that I wanted to say was that I bought the 2 books that the series is based on. Although I enjoyed them very much they have NOTHING to do with the show. Not one character is even the same. But they were fun reads. The time periods were the same for both the books and the series. I wish they would do a reunion movie on a regular basis. The Christmas movie was a pleasant surprise. Too bad most of the main cast was not available to be in it for whatever reason.
