Storyline

France, 1915. Young and radiantly beautiful Centaine de Thiry is the happiest woman in the world: in a few more hours she will be married to pilot Michael Courteney, the love of her life. But fate has it otherwise: Michael is shot down in a reconnaissance plane shortly before his wedding. Life has lost its meaning for Centaine. When the young woman realizes soon afterwards that she is expecting a baby, her zest for live is revived. She decides to give birth to the child in South Africa, the home country of her deceased fiancé. She starts on her long voyage, planning to stay with an uncle. However, Centaine's boat is attacked and sunk by a submarine. She uses all her strength to cling to a gangplank. Many hours later, she is washed ashore on the African coast suffering from hypothermia and exhaustion. Soon after, Hani and Owi, an old native couple, find her. The old people look after Centaine lovingly and care for her until she has completely recovered. The two Africans and the young ... Written by Anonymous

Just dreamy..
2 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

I saw this TV series on a local channel about 9 years ago and could never forget its beauty ! I love Romantic novels and this one was just dreamy ...Though I am not an accomplished critic I will just try to express my impression about it ...the story begins with Centaine the young pretty French girl then moves from France to South Africa in the most beautiful locations I have ever seen on TV!! Acting also was just wonderful especially Derek De lint as if he wasn't acting at all!!! I liked Jason Connery also although his appearance wasn't long enough .

It is my favorite TV series so far ,I wish to be in Centaine 's shoes and live such a wonderful adventure and find true love !!! I recommend it for all the girls to see; Believe me you won't regret it at all .
