Storyline

A woman named Caroline reappears after a 14-year absence, during which time she was thought to have died in a plane crash. Claiming to be the daughter of wealthy Paul Carmichael from his first marriage, she explains that she didn't board the plane, and had used the chance to flee her shallow debutante lifestyle. Paul's new wife, Grace, is deeply suspicious of the woman's story -- especially since Caroline stands to inherit a fortune. Written by Jwelch5742

good movie
27 February 2004 | by thompson819See all my reviews

I remember seeing this with my aunt when I was about 8 as a Hallmark movie on CBS. I remembered liking it and never forgot about it. I just saw it again recently on the Hallmark channel, and I don't think the themes are too adult for a child. I basically understood what was going on the first time I saw it. I'm usually not big on what I think of as Lifetime movies, but Caroline? is well made and the performances were believable. I didn't even know it was based on a book, so I can't comment on how accurate it is compared to that. Looking at it as just a movie, without the comparison to a book, it's great. I'd recommend watching it to anyone with a free weekend afternoon.
