| Delightful film !!
Most enjoyable thing I have watched on television in a long time. A really nice portrayal of frontier life in a busy Gold-mining town. The perfect 'American Girl' film ~ would keep any group of young girls ~ I'd say up to about age 14 ~ happy on an overnight or birthday party day. Highly recommended for moms too! A great historical film ~ I really enjoy olde time clothing and the costuming was fantastic! A delightful film all around !! The film is a bit reminiscent of Jane Seymours ~ Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman television show. The funny thing is that I had purchased the paperback book of this film way back in 1999 but had stashed it on the shelf and never read it. Happened upon the film on television tonight and am delighted!
