Every woman deserves a prince but how about a DUKE instead??? this is THE best of the mini series and tv movies based on the Danielle Steel best Seller. Sarah Thompson (Annette O'Toole) begins with the marriage of her dreams but find he is an alcoholic when drunk is abusive. After the loss of her first child after he abuses her off to Europe on a grand tour with her very rich parents. In England she runs into a handsome rich quietly shy Duke (Anthony Andrews) who never told her he was royalty. His quiet pursuit of this shy sad lady who he falls hard and fast for is very good. We see him pursue her to Italy where after some efforts on his part.... he persuades her to marry him. The Duke of Whitefield is wonderfully played by Andrews who we like from the minute we see him. O'toole is excellent as woman who is sad and finds a second chance at love with her new Duke~. while on their honeymoon in France they come across an abandoned villa and Sarah has dreams of fixing it up. soon the Duke and Dutchess work hard to fix up their new home. But the war breaks out and the Duke in the reserve has to leave and go back to to England. Sarah had given birth and with her tiny son Phillip has to stay in France when the war breaks out. with the loss of a daughter to a fever , and years of separation from her duke we see her have a friendship with a Nazi who helps Sarah and her family survive the war. Finding her Duke who is injured and recovers. mean while the couple purchase JEWELS from the locals who need a fresh start in life and have hidden the jewels from the Nazis. so the Whitefield buys Jewels and starts a world wide Jewelry company. Typical Steel is the HORRIBLE brat son Phillip who only gets more vain and selfish as he grows up. Sleeps with his brothers slutty wife, YOungest wild child daughter is married to cheating italian who will not divorce her and helps to plot with Phillip to slip the family up~ very soap opera but this story rolls along at a good pace and keeps us entertained enough to see how Sarah ends up. I liked Annette O'Toole who did a nice job aging from a very young Sarah to a grandmother in this movie~ Phillip who is dislikable every step of the way~ and all her unlikeable children show what the Whitefield family is 'really' made of when push comes to shove. Romance great scenery they have those taky 1960's styles done pat in this one~ theme song won a Golden Globe Award. I give a solid 7 out of 10. you will want to watch the whole thing just to see how it ends.
BEST of all the Steel movies~See also Changes and Palamino.

The DVD was sought and bought after seeing the movie on TV. I wanted to watch it without all the commercials. I like WW II settings; except for the heroine the stars were unknown to me but good.
The DVD arrived new in shrink-wrap. It has been an excellent buy.
I would love to see more TV movies from Lifetime Movie Network and Hallmark channels. Would also like a great classic movie source.
This DVD from the "made for tv" movie is almost too good to be true. The storyline is as accurate to the novel as Hollywood can make it. The actors "take on" the characters and it is so very easy to become so engrossed in the movie that you lose track of time.
Recommend all Daniells Steel's "books into movies" for the TRUE Danielle Steel fan.
I read the book and I wanted to see the movie. Danielle Steele is the best romance author around and if you like her books you'll love her movies. Especially this Movie "jewels"
Being an avid collector of Danielle Steel's dvds, I had to add this one to my collection. This was one of my favorite of her stories. Lots of drama and romance. Lessons of loss and streng.
