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>

Worthwhile watching
3 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful series I've caught on INSP for the last 2 years. The acting is superb and the storyline, terrific. The main characters, Mae, her daughter Grace, and her daughter-in-law all portray wonderful character development over time. The children grow up before your eyes as well. It's heart-warming and full of vintage memories of very tough, yet good times - evoking similar stories my parents often told me of the Great Depression.

Light a fire in the fireplace on a cool autumn evening, sit back, put your feet up, and make the world go away for awhile; you won't be wasting your time.
