Storyline

Young Judith Dunbar is a quiet, gentle voiced teenager in the 1930s, relegated to a life at boarding school thanks to her colonial parents. Judith becomes adopted into the family of her best friend, young Loveday Carey Lewis, after the death of her aunt and guardian, Louise Forrester. Judith falls in love with the family, their home, Nancherrow, and Loveday's older brother Edward. When war strikes, Judith and the Carey-Lewis family all suffer, as Judith loses her family, and Loveday her fiancé; Gus. Judith muddles through the war losing Edward and aunt Lavinia in the process. But the war draws to a close, and Judith finds new romance, and Loveday suffers the consequences of a very hard decision, as she is forced to choose between Gus whom she loves, and her husband, Walter, the father of her young boy Nathaniel.

Love...Exciting and new...Come aboard...it's World War 2...
8 January 2001 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

A 4-hour romance novel set in Britain before during and after WWII. The heroine falls into a fortune near the beginning and nothing much worse happens to her after that. I hoped for a couple more plot twists, but even so, it has its charms, and I looked forward to finishing all 4 episodes. Good acting. Fair-Poor direction. Horrible soundtrack reminiscent of an oatmeal commercial.

American viewers will be surprised (well, I was) by the partial female nudity that pops up every hour or so just as interest starts to flag.
