Recently released from her vows as a nun, Christine Bennett is discovering "life on the outside." After a visit to her mentally-handicapped cousin Gene, Christine becomes embroiled in the investigation of the murder mystery surrounding James and Edward Talley, twin savant brothers accused of killing their mother on Good Friday, 1974. Written by
An interesting story given the Hallmark touch. Potentially, the plot was somewhat hard-hitting, but it was handled the way the Harlequin romances were when made into movies: light, entertaining, perfect Sunday afternoon fare. The story concerns idiot savant twins who were suspected, but never tried and convicted, of killing their mother thirty years earlier. The twins were separated and put into separate facilities and, without each other, they stopped communicating. An ex-nun becomes involved in finding the real killer. The cast is able, though the main character is short on development.
David Proval does a good job as the twins and Patty Duke brings spark as a nun.
