Jake Van der Berg, her father’s stepbrother and her only living relative, assumes guardianship of Tiernan who is still two months shy of 18. In the opening scenes, the lady of the house where young Emily Kennedy is working kicks the bucket, which is lucky for Emily, apparently, since the widower proposes to her after about a week.

But the combination of the two together gives this film a special magical contrast of emotion and circumstance seldom seen in most cinema. So, there are two or three more really dismal installments of The Catherine Cookson Experience coming up, and I thought that before I hit all the marital rape and spouse-slapping, everyone could use one that’s pleasantly absurd. Determining whether love at first sight really exists with Robbie Moravian as my project partner of all people?Set at the turn of the twentieth century, The Tide of Life is the compelling story of Emily Kennedy, a lively and unconventional young woman whose relationships with three very different men teach her valuable lessons about life and love. Forced from home of her first employer, Sep McGilby after his plans to marry her come to tragic end, Emily finds work as housekeeper for farmer, Larry Birch. Emily Kennedy loves her life as the maid for the McGilby family, but when tragedy strikes, and the family dies, Emily must take her younger sister with her and find another job. And whatever else happened, she clung grimly to a scrap of philosophy that carried her through the bitter struggles of her new life.

The Tide of Life" is a 3x45 minute TV period miniseries (circa late 1800's) based on the novel by prolific authoress Catherine Cookson. Yet somehow (I suspect wholly due to Gillian Kearney), large portions of this one are watchable, though it contains two bairnsketballs, attempted rape of an underage girl, attempted marital rape, one stillbirth, a nice guy jumping off a cliff, and a nice guy getting bludgeoned to death.But the villagers near his farm hate him because a girl caught a case of bairnsketball and they blame him — that’s bad. Catherine Cookson was born in Tyne Dock, the illegitimate daughter of a poverty-stricken woman, Kate, who Catherine believed was her older sister. Emily must go through many difficulties in the few years of her young life that are depicted in this novel. The household of Croft Dene House, where Lawrence Birch ruled as master, was a strange one, and as Emily became more deeply involved with the family’s affairs, she grew rapidly to a young woman, needing all her strength of will and character to get her through.

She received an OBE in 1985, was created a Dame of the British Empire in 1993, and was appointed an Honorary Fellow of St Hilda's College, Oxford, in 1997. Bairnsketballs: One for our heroine, one from an extra, plus a tumor everyone thinks is a bairnsketball. Tide of Life follows the fortunes of young housekeeper, Emily Kennedy, as she learns about relationships with three very different men. Loved this story and Catherine Cookson never disappointed me with the many stories she has told over the years.But his other girlfriend wants the nice French table, so Emily can’t have it – that’s STONE COLD, holy crap. Set around the beginnings of the 1900's in rural England, high school readers might struggle w/ historical or British terms, but they could read it despite the scandalous romances that happen along the way. Of all films based on the writings of Catherine Cookson, this film is my top-ranked all-time favorite.

I didn’t want to hurt you by telling you in person,” it begins, so you know how this is going to go. She loved her job as maid-of-all-work to the McGilbys, and the only cloud on her horizon was her anxiety about her delicate younger sister, Lucy.
