I have watched all Wind At My Back Seasons. To me they are the most enjoyable series I have ever watched. I am elderly and what a joy to get to know the charactors. You feel as if you know them. I have bought and watched all of them more than once. I wish the young people would watch them, if only to see what life was like. I lived it,I know. Brought back so many memories.Wish it could have gone on and on.

4."A River Rages": A popular author visits New Bedford and falls for Toppy. Fat and Pritchard run into trouble when mine collapses while they are in...
I loved the whole series of Wind at my Back. The writing is excellent and each character is given their own strength. The acting was superb. I started out loving the younger characters, but ended up feeling the characters of Toppy and Grace were so well written about during a time when women were emerging into their own. Of course, this was because the acting was brilliant. These actors brought the whole series to life. I felt like I needed one more series to finish a lot of the back stories. Even after the Christmas ending, I wanted more. Thank you Sullivan Entertainment. Bring more of this kind of entertainment back. It's a lot better written than most series of today.
