Not a bad teleflick, but the Danielle Steel book is a lot better. John Ritter is fine, but Polly Draper is badly miscast (and her character Adrian is badly written in this script, she's a lot better in the book). Her voice squeaks so much, it drove me up the wall. It's an OK teleflick, but the TV movie adaptions of Steel's Once In A Lifetime and Jewels, for example, are a lot better. I'd just as rather reread the book Heartbeat again, but I digress.
