The daughter is forced to work under terrible conditions in a the big house until she ultimately marries one of the family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb. 19 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
One of Tv's better productions of Cookson's books. A dark and sometimes disturbing tale, quality acting, lots of twists and turns and an upstairs downstairs part that brutally highlights vivid class distinction in early Victorian England. A must for those who enjoy period dramas.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Black Velvet Gown 12 July 2013

Brilliant film, very well scripted and exceptionally well acted.
It had English subtitles which is not mentioned in the write-up but was important to my partially deaf spouse.
