Love is just a piece of time
21 April 2002 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

Good prequel to "Christmas Box": takes us back to WW2 and shows how Mrs. Parkin met her mate and came to own a special timepiece which is handed down to her 'heirs'. I wanted to know more about the watch before it came into Lawrence's hands and, also, what became of Mr. Parkin. This is a real 2 hanky flic and could have been beefed up a tad more, but was still a winner.
