| Unforgettable mix of murder, passion and revenge!
A legacy of love, hate, betrayal and revenge that spans three generations and nearly half a century. Catherine Cookson's epic novel is brought to the screen in a sweeping miniseries.

Growing up in a 19th century, working class English town, Roddy, Hal and Mary Ellen are the closest of friends. The unspeakable hardships they have each suffered as children - including the murders of Roddy's and Hal's fathers at the hands of the same man - have sealed their bond of friendship.

That unshakable friendship of childhood will be severely tested in the years to come. Mary Ellen secretly yearns for Roddy, who spurns her before leaving town - and leaving her pregnant. She thinks she has found a loving partner in Hal and believes their marriage will heal the chaos of their early lives. Years later, events reach an explosive conclusion, when an American visitor begins to court their young daughter - and Hal uncovers the real identity of her mysterious suitor.

Filmed on location in the north of England, "A Dinner of Herbs" is an unforgettable mix of murder, passion and revenge!
