One of the best Danielle Steel TV movies
10 October 2000 | by Monika-5See all my reviews

As far as Danielle Steel's TV movie adaptions of her books, this is one of her very best, along with Once in a Lifetime and Vanished. Sure, it's a fluffy melodrama, but who cares?? Annette O'Toole and Anthony Andrews are both wonderful, and you really believe in their everlasting love for each other, and their children. The portrayals of the children (both as children and adults) are credible as well. Interesting note: Bradley Cole, who played Freddie, currently plays Prince Richard Winslow on Guiding Light.
