Overview

This vivid rural melodrama sees our heroine fall victim to a lurid revenge plot hatched by her mother's rejected beau. A fine performance from James Carew as the devious villain is a prime ingredient in this heady brew. But the extensive filming around Heptonstall in Yorkshire steals the limelight in a tale of treachery, madness and thwarted love among 19th-century country folk.
