Unexpectedly wonderful
Review by Tracy H. on 12/05/21 review stating Unexpectedly wonderful
The handsome Captain Dreyfuss (Aaron Staton) many will recognize as having played the character Ken Cosgrove in Mad Men. He is the perfect romantic hero to Rose Coyne. But this is much more than a romance, a fascinating look at a village in Ireland during the second World War. All the characters were great and very relatable.
