This comedy is based on the story "A secret to tell" of Rosamunde Pilcher.In fact we can identify four different themes: the family secret (Sam is the natural child of Ashley Barton and only Lord Ravenhurst knows it), the love of the past (Vivian and Sam), the love that Taylor feels for Vivian (sometimes the people d'on't see what they have before their eyes) y and finally the gambling addiction of Sam (in various stories Rosamunde Pilcher describes the consequencesof that adddiction).
Land der Sehnsucht is a good comedy.
