I hope there will be more quality made-for-TV movies in the future.
3 December 1999 | by mikecarolynSee all my reviews

I am so glad I taped this movie. I have watched it over and over again! Janine Turner was excellent as well as her co-star Paudge Behan, whom I have never seen before and would like more information regarding his biography. Janine gets more beautiful with age and I was so impressed with Paudge Behan. This was a wonderful love story. I love happy endings!After seeing this movie I checked out the book and read it and was surprised at how different the book was compared to the movie. However, I tend to like the movie version better than the book. Would love to see more of Janine & Paudge in the future. The scenery was lovely in Venice and Dublin as well!
