Based on one of Louisa May Alcott’s younger writings, this is a made-for-television adaptation of a melodramatic novel. Set in the 1870s, Edith was rescued by a well-to-do family and raised as companion to their daughter. The story tells of her learning about her background and falling in love. Some very over-the-top characterizations, especially with the “evil” cousin who tries to thwart Edith. Some acceptable bustle gowns, but nothing to get excited about. A fine cable watch, but I wouldn’t spend any money on it.
