This enjoyable period drama deals with the life story of a woman who lives her life while trying to withstand the stereotypes for women's lives at the time. The costuming is very appealing to the eye as is thee rest of the reconstruction of the living style of the time. Always interesting this is a satisfying series to watch.Sally Field does a good job representing the lead actress.

I've watched two episodes of this series and enjoyed them. Sally Field does an excellent job of playing the young woman who must stand on her own energies and talents, even when in a happy marriage. I'm not going to watch the remainder of the series because Amazon is charging $2 (standard) for each segment. The second segment was about 30 minutes long. So instead of showing this in two parts, it's divided into 6! Amazon seems to be charging for many shows and movies they used to show for free.

I guess I expected the story to follow the title, but saw nothing remarkable in this woman's life. She didn't seem to care for marriage or motherhood, but marries again and manipulates her children into staying by her side.
Should be titled " A socialite experiences narcissism." I am well off, no where near her standards, but I help those in need. If she made any sort of difference, it wasn't shown in the series.

I thoroughly enjoy well made and well acted period dramas. This miniseries was both, well made and well acted. I really enjoyed Sally Field's performance. It was nice too because miniseries have quite a bit longer run time than just an average movie.

This was a lovely genteel story of loving relationships and family bonding during difficult circumstances. Sally Field gave a great performance. A nice interlude to the majority of chaotic films out there.

This series simply doesn't do the wonderful book justice. Acting is mediocre and there is nothing worse than forced southern accents!
