An Irish family feuds over ownership of a copper mine

Daphne du Maurier herself helped write the script of this fine movie adaptation of her best-selling full-blooded historical romantic novel.

Set in 1840, the epic storyline tells of how the beautiful Fanny Rose Flower marries into a feuding Irish family and gets caught up in a violent struggle for ownership of a copper mine. After her husband dies, her spoiled older son rejects her, she falls upon hard times, moves to London and turns to gambling and drug addiction. But a violent confrontation with the past lurks just around the corner…
