Haunting mini series.
29 May 2017 | by altonpeterSee all my reviews

A complex story certainly. The twists and turns take you across decades with much of the story told in flashback. I found this adaptation to be extremely atmospheric and well acted.

In summary, the quality of the production is high, and the story will hold your interest. The acting is first-rate.

The journey to the story's resolution is satisfying even if the resolution itself is not completely so.
