This main female character (Denise - heroine) takes a job in this large department store, where the storyline really begins to develop. Her abilities attracts the owner (Moray - the hero), and we see how Denise progresses in her job responsibilities, as well as the development of her relationships with other employees at the store,. Two of the supporting characters Arthur & Sam provide humor to the story line. We also see the character Kathryn (the protagonist) who provides the grist between Moray, Denise & herself. Kathryn is pushing to marry Moray, even though what we see developing is the growing affection between Denise and Moray. There is a nice flow of emotional experiences to hold your interest. Loved this series even though I knew that there would not be a Season 3. I've ordered what was produced, and have delighted in what I experienced while watching this program.
Of course at first she’s starry eyed, dazzled by all the beauty around her, the latest material goods being produced in Victorian England — hats, gloves, handbags, shoes. But she’s especially dazzled by the dresses, the latest Parisian fashions. They represent a world far beyond her reach but one she longs to be a part of. So, the story has the arc of a usual rags-to-riches tale, though Denise’s riches will come in many forms: love, friendship, acceptance, pride in work.
There are many wonderful characters in the production, a true ensemble piece.Read more ›
It's disappointing to see that the solid foundations of the first series were not built upon, and that instead of a sophisticated drama we have been given a soap-opera in costume - the writers/producers responsible certainly did not rise to the challenge of making a sequel worthy of Zola.
