I loved this series, and I am so glad that I bought it! The characters are wonderful and very well acted. I think anyone who loves girly movies will be drawn in very quickly by the beautifully woven story, the stunning scenery and the characters. My young sons thoroughly enjoyed watching it with me, and it ticked every box for our family. Because it has so many episodes, I could easily re-watch it numerous times, and still enjoy it.
