Young Molly is very innocent and kind hearted, with a fierce love for her father. Her mother died when she was only a child, which brought her closer to her beloved father. A heartwarming moment is when Molly and Dr. Gibson are sitting in front of the fireplace eating melted cheese on toast, and the simplicity of being together eating their favorite foods is wonderful.
Dr. Gibson decides he must get married, as Molly "needs" a mother. He chooses one of the silliest ladies I have ever seen: Mrs. Kirkpatrick-Claire/Hyacinth. She is self-absorbed and a very bad mother, but she sometimes has good moments. However, Hyacinth has a daughter Molly's age who is returning from school in France, her name is Cynthia and she is VERY beautiful, high-spirited and foolish.
Watching this story unfold is a delightful experience. I cannot express the utter joy I get while watching this fabulous mini-series. Though it deviates from the book a bit, it doesn't detract from the story.
If you are a fan of Jane Austen, you will thoroughly enjoy this series!
