The tragic, unexpected death of David in a car-crash causes the cozy, safe life of gardener Beth to be thrown into complete chaos. In the aftermath, as Beth begins to pick up the pieces, worrying facts come to light about David's illegal deals with Oliver, the family solicitor, and his apparent long-running, illicit affair with Julia, Oliver's wife. In her distress and disbelief Beth digs deeper into her husband's private affairs and uncovers another layer of lies and deceit concerning Julia's mental stability and her friends' hollow, loveless marriage. Beth's anger and desperation for the truth about the husband she loved drives her ever on toward the truth behind tragic events of the past which lead inevitably towards further tragedy to come.

For God's sake, take care of little Rosie!
26 November 1998 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

This two-part television play looked very promising. After all, it starred Tara Fitzgerald and Cherie Lunghi. Sadly, although they were both good, as was Peter Bowles, the whole did not live up to its promise. This must be the fault of the original novel. The "mystery" is simply too obvious. Crazy women should have gone out with Mrs Rochester. The production has several impressive features, especially the main titles, with the voracious, almost bursting house. This could have graced a better play, perhaps a Barbara Vine adaptation. To go back to the principals, Cherie Lunghi is forced to claw the air far too much, when her forte is seductive menace, while poor Tara Fitzgerald is forced to be dreary, though she manages to get a certain amount of steel into the character. Would the producers please allow members of the audience to drown little Rosie?
