Storyline

The first night of the miniseries "Christy: A Change of Seasons" centers on the deadly typhoid epidemic, the most pivotal point in the novel's adaptation. The disease preys upon the mountain folk in isolated Cutter Gap causing enormous terror, suffering and leaving tragedy in its wake. For many generations superstition has led the isolated mountain folk to believe that all real danger comes from outside the cove. MacNeill exhausts himself caring for them, trying to get them to see that their own water and lack of sanitation is making them sick. The tragic death of her cherished friend, Fairlight Spencer (INGRID TORRENCE) affects Christy in cathartic and intimate ways, sending her into an emotional tailspin, catapulting her into a primal crisis of faith questioning the fairness and even the existence of God. She leans on Grantland's faith and accepts his proposal.

I really liked this show. The only thing is that I watched it on Hallmark Channel, and in here, sometimes this network cuts the movies so they can fit them in the two hour range they have. So, even though I watched the two parts, I´m not really sure if all the pieces that I find missing, are really missing or if it is a problem of the network. All in all, with missing pieces and all, I find it a pretty well acted tale, with a great story, romantic where it should be romantic, and tragic where it should be tragic. I tape it, and if I can find an original copy, I´ll buy it.
