This is a must-see for lovers of romance, especially Catherine Cookson fans!, 28 December 1999
Author: timzebgil (timzebgil@aol.com) from Long Island, New York (USA)

I am a big fan of Catherine Cookson's work, and have seen all movies based on her books. I read the Tilly Trotter trilogy about a year ago, and ordered this movie the minute I learned of it. I was not disappointed! The movie, Tilly Trotter, is one of the finest interpretations of a Catherine Cookson novel, definitely as good or better than The Girl. It's a great story, which deals with class divisions, overcoming adversity and the power of love.

As with the first book in the Tilly Trotter series, I was left wishing the story would continue. I hope there are plans to make movies based on the second and third books in the series, with the same cast, of course! I'll be waiting and hoping!

A tip for US viewers: To defray the cost of purchasing this and other Cookson movies, consider donating them to your public library for a tax deduction. They'll be there whenever you get the urge to see them again. Meanwhile, others are sure to enjoy these movies.
