Memories Linger
22 January 2002 | by (Chilliwack BC Canada) – See all my reviews

Peggy Snow (Pam Ferris) is dead and no longer a member of the cast of "Where the Heart Is". Just as in life, when someone dies they and their memory do not instantly disappear, they continue to impact the lives of those left behind. The lives of the characters in this English soap continue to be impacted and affected by Peggy's death and the adds depth and realism to this series. The cast are not all beautiful, nor are they rich, but they are real people and you can't help caring about them. A wonderful show.
