Heart warming
5 April 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm not into soap's and never considered "Escrava Isaura" as a soap opera. North American soap's go on forever and depending on the writers and characters you never know where the story begins or if it will ever end! Escrava Isaura is what I would call a mini-series. It's based on a book by Bernardo Guimaraes and takes place in Brazil during African slavery in the mid 1800's. Though not based on a true story but like the movie Titanic....it sunk but the love story between Jack & Rose was fictional. The story takes us to Isaura's pain in the hands of her master's son, her struggle for freedom and the dream of one day being with her true love. It's heart warming and heart wrenching. I loved it when it first aired in 1977 and still one of my favourites to this day.
