Part I starts out quite interesting and held my attention. Part II gets a little more "strung out" with lots of subplots and characters because of all the children. Part III is lost. All the actors who have played the characters up to this point change. The casting person saw fit to replace everyone who had been in the forefront, thereby leaving the viewer with the difficult task of determining who was supposed to be whom in older age. I think it would have been wiser to have aged the existing actors than to have replaced them. And although I found the settings, costumes and countrysides of Ireland, France and England beautiful and extravagent, the actress who played Sarah was distracting. Adorable as a brown-haired, cherub-like child, she transforms into a big-eyed, blonde young woman who seems to have trouble making eye contact with anyone, and is overly dramatic. I felt very little emotion for these pampered people until the end when Emily rushes to her son, Edward's, side. Part I is definitely the best part of this story, but for period piece lovers, this entire series might be a worthwhile choice anyway. [b]SYNOPSIS:[/b] Three-part BBC drama telling the story of the Lennox sisters, born into one of the most prominent families of 18th century England. A rich evocation of a bygone era, with romance, intrigue, and family drama. This is a true story of four sisters - descendents of King Charles II and his French mistress. The sisters, Carolyn, Emily, Louisa and Sarah, are played by Serena Gordon, Geraldine Somerville, Anne-Marie Duff and Jodhi May). The story begins in England in 1743.
