I really enjoyed it
31 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't really know why this story touched me but it did. I suppose it has something to do with how the story was described. It's about that one great love that you have. Things may or may not work out. If they do work out you know that the love you feel at first will never last so even though you two may be together there's a sadness.

If you like British or costume drama you'll love this story. I found the characters very compelling. There is a good article about how the story was made on the PBS website. I found it all very interesting. If you long for the days when women were courted in their living rooms then this movie/story is for you.
