In "The Porter's Wife," Sarah Berry, and her five young children, survived the helplessness and despair of 1901 Manchester, England, after the death of their beloved husband and father before embarking on an arduous and life changing journey. We saw Sarah as a strong woman, steadfast and fiercely determined to see her family right at all cost. Time softened Sarah, as it often does many, but not before her indomitable spirit left an indelible mark on those closest to her.
In "The Seeds of Sorrow," it is now the Twenties and Thirties and their world is mired in Prohibition and the Great Depression. It is a tumultuous time, one of upheaval and devastating loss made worse by the lingering effects of the First World War. Few families are left untouched and Sarah's is no exception.
Sarah's daughter Agnes is now married and is similarly fighting for her own family through difficult circumstances. She is as steadfast as her mother, and as relentless in her determination to see her family through their struggles. But a devastating accident, an irreversible singular moment in time, turns Agnes's world upside down and threatens to tear apart all that she holds dear.
Agnes's own spirit, born from the echoes of generations past, holds strong as she fights to keep her family together, but she learns the hard way that happiness can be fleeting and no matter how hard you love, sometimes love isn't enough.
