The wife of a kind but uninteresting preacher is scorned by her community for supplementing the family income by taking a job at the local grocery store in this drama starring Lindsay Duncan and based on the book by Joanna Trollope. Anna Bouverie's husband has been passed over for a job promotion, leaving her family financially destitute. Concerned that they will not be able to survive on the humble preacher's meager income, Anna decides to alleviate both the money issue and her personal boredom by accepting a position as a shelf stocker at the local grocery store. Largely mocked by the traditional-minded community for her benign act of independence, Anna soon begins to attract the attention of Cotswald Village's male population. Now, as the men in the small village begin falling in love with the beautiful married woman, Anna finds herself forced to choose between not only two men, but her commitments to her family and her own independence as well. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Poor synopsis of movie ; there was adultery, fornication and showing of breast of a teen girl , drunkeness and poor image of marriage- movie should have been further explained in more detail as I would never see it nor reccommend it. if I had known what I was going to see.
This little miniseries, or whatever it is, doesn't really have much to offer. It is kind of like reading a watered down Harlequin romance. The main character is an unfulfilled wife of a repressed clergy, who, when he fails to get an expected promotion, just kind of shuts out everyone and goes into a depressed funk. Meanwhile other men seem to come out of the woodwork, all attracted to his naive wife, and she is just trying to keep her young daughter from being miserable and also trying to "find herself", which only gets a lot of gossip going amongst the parishioners. There's not a lot of excitement here, but if you like Danielle Steele or the like, you might find it interesting.
