This is a "Family Feature Film" from a novel written by Louisa May Alcott. Raised as a paid Companion to the Hamilton's daughter Amy, in the 1870's in Massachusetts, Edith an orphan accepts her lower social status. When she is attracted to a man above her social class she struggles with her place in society. When the Hamilton's relative, Ida places suspicion on EDith, she ends up making herself look bad to everyone. Edith discovers a secret about her past that changes her life and status.

This really is a charming movie - set in America but not unlike a Jane Austin/British chick flick. Tom Conti and Meredith Baxter do a great job as the parents, but the young girls steal the show, especially the visiting cousin, a sly, manipulative vixen who's a match for Bingleys sisters in Pride and Prejudice. It's based on a novel from Louis May Alcott, and is surprisingly good.

Typical of the century and their way of thinking...blood lines are most desirable to be at the top. However, this movie shows me that the most important question to ask of oneself is, how much do I love me! When we love ourselves most, we are happy and give that love to others. With this way of thinking Edith and Ida would be most self-confident in their lives.
