Storyline

Wealthy estate owner sir Michael Audley willingly marries a gold-digger, his only daughter Alicia's governess Lucy née Gray. Sir Michael's dashing, in-living orphaned nephew Robert 'Bob' returns from an Australia gold rush adventure with his new best friend George Talboys, a young father who finds his wife died in their absence. Robert is instantly attracted to Lucy, who buries her past with George by leaving him drowning in a well. Maid Phoebe's boyfriend finds out Lucy's secret and blackmails her. Later Robert comes on the trace of the truth, while accepting to marry Alicia as Michael seems infertile. But after Robert tells Michael, the consequences and the extent of deception exceed their imagination. Written by KGF Vissers

Not very secret
6 July 2004 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

The "secret" is continually thrown in the viewer's face; there is no mystery about it. The production is too mechanical and cranked out; it gets boring. Poor screenplay, followed by poor direction and mediocre acting, followed by choppy editing. Its kind of like a cake baked in a microwave, burned around the edges and still raw in the center. As is unfortunately typical of many period productions, it requires that the viewer already have a general understanding of the social history of the time; in this case that a woman's only protection in life was to be either born into money, or marry it. The author used various details from her own life in the original story.
