The novel from which this TV movie was taken is a classic example of a Danielle Steel potboiler. Once such "women's pictures" were a Hollywood staple, attracting stars of the calibre of Joan Crawford and Barbara Stanwyck. Eva LaRue may not be in their league, but she suffers nobly here as the Italian wife of an American army officer whos frozen out of the family by hellish mother-in-law Angie Dickinson. Directed with exemplary overstatement by Bethany Rooney, this is undemanding escapism of the tear-jerking kind.
To overcome the emotional scars of her own past, Vanessa Fullerton recounts her mother Serena's extraordinary life- a tragic death. Serena marries a dashing U.S. colonel, relinquishing her family's fortune. When her husband dies, an impoverished Serena struggles to care for her young daughter until noted photographer Vasili catapults Serena to fame. But Vasili hides a dangerous secret, a secret that leaves a painful legacy.
