Splendid adaptation of the Catherine Cookson novel!

This is a splendid adaptation of Catherine Cookson's 1950s-era novel.
It centers around rich, strong-willed Vanessa Ratcliffe (Emilia Fox) and
poor, ambitious Angus Cotton (Ben Miles). Vanessa and Angus are good
despite her snobbish parents' objections. When Vanessa becomes pregnant,
Angus is wrongfully accused and Vanessa's life begins to fall apart. Angus
comes to her rescue but the events that bring them together also threaten
tear them apart. It is a wonderful, heartwarming story of love, revenge,
ambition and the determination to succeed against the odds. A must
