Lark Rise to Candleford
Based on the memoirs of Flora Thompson
(Seasons 1 & 2)
This is the perfect costume-drama/period-series... it just ended its fourth and final (sadly) season. I devoured season 1 and I'm half-way through season 2 and I'm addicted! You can't ask for more than this; a wonderful cast of colorful characters, great acting, delightful stories, sweet romances, and plenty of humor.... AND it's clean!
Yes, it's silly that I feel like I know these people personally and I'm so interested in their lives. I root for them. I get wrapped up in their sorrows and joys. And I can't wait to find out what happens next.
