Set in rural Northumberland during the 1830s, this Catherine Cookson story tells of Cissie Brodie's struggle to keep the family intact when the sudden death of her parents causes them to be evicted from their cottage. Local carpenter Matthew helps Cissie look after her five brothers, and eventually falls in love with her, but Cissie becomes pregnant after being raped by a local aristocrat.
In The Dwelling Place, a family of nine orphans sustains a meager existence by squatting in an abandoned stone house, while its oldest daughter, preparing to enter adult society, is confronted by the redeeming powers of love. Starring Tracy Whitwell, The Dwelling Place is based on Catherine Cookson's novel of the same name.

The story centres around a girl who opts to live with her young brothers and sisters in a cave, rather than enduring the horrors of the work house.
The characters are more rounded than you expect from Cookson. This leaves plenty of scope to develop major dilemmas. Each character has to make difficult choices between following their emotions or following a safer route to security. In the end, all the characters have to make compromises.
Much of the action takes place outside in idyllic settings. This reinforces the value of freedom, even if it means being homeless.
There are those who won't like the ending, but I felt that it was in keeping with the sensibilites of people in the era the story was set in.
The story does drag a little towards the end as issues start to become resolved.
I would recommend this DVD to anyone looking for thought provoking entertainment, which isn't too emotionally taxing.
The character in it focuses on a young woman who was raped by the son of a wealty man and not only does she have to bring up the baby in utter filth but she also has younger brothers to also look after who have to work in the mines.She does the best she can with the child and tries to keep her home (the dwelling) which is basically a hole in a cave,clean and tidy.She has many suiters who try to help her,but due to her pride she will not let them help her.It has a wonderful ending that will make you cry but I won't spoil it for you,you will have to watch it to see.
Love the Catherine Cookson series
