Enjoyed it.By a customer from Wigan, England , 12 Apr 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]If you are a fan of Barbara Taylor Bradford then I recommend you rent this. I enjoyed it from start to finish and thought Melissa Gilbert acted well.
I think though that this is mainly a woman's film, but my partner likes Catherine Cookson (for period drama) so you never know chaps.
I would actually give this between 3 and 4 stars.

Good Music - Morally BankruptBy nightjourney90210 (10 reviews) from London, England , 22 May 2010
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideFine and likeable leads, and Jean Simmons lifted the film higher than it deserved. Very glamorous, wouldn't have the same resonance if they all lived in council flats I'm certain. But I have to say, going on about how you wish your wheelchair ridden wife at death's door would recover and within a heartbeat start snogging some other bird, unacceptable! Maybe it makes more sense in the book. The music is very uplifting though, and in a manipulative way gets us rooting for these people.
schmaltzyBy egbertnochips (32 reviews) from CORSHAM, UK , 03 Mar 2009Nice colours and backgrounds. We liked the very beginning, but gave up fairly shortly afterwards. Too predictable.

UninspiringBy Mal (98 reviews) from Gloucester , 28 Aug 2008Having seen 'Woman of Substance,' I found this story a lot less inspiring. I found it difficult to relate to the characters in this story and the plot seemed rather slow moving.
