Summary
At the turn of the century, a time when women had few choices, Bess Steed Garner inherits a legacy - not only of wealth but of determination and desire, making her truly a woman of independent means. Adapted from the epistolary novel, this film follow the life of Bess Steed Garner from her childhood in 1899 to her death in 1977. Bess endures life's trials and triumphs of life with unfailing courage and indomitable spirit: the sacrifices love sometimes requires of the heart, the flaws and rewards of marriage, the often-tested bond between mother and child, and the will to defy a society that demands conformity
