...that also means that the show covers Laura's early adulthood , since she started teaching school at 16 (I think),, There was also a younger sister, Grace. And later, Laura had a baby girl, Rose. Potential for a lot of kids ! And an interesting plot- I thought it was about her older years as a writer etc. Cecile, did you ever read these books ? They probably aren't too common in France...thanks for the info.
