Starts out focusing on the boy, but as it moves towards the mother it gets interesting. Ended up really liking it and am looking forward to the next series.

Thoroughly enjoyed this series.

I was very interested to see what others thought of this. While I did not think it was terrible, I found myself slightly bored. With the characters in the family, I found none of them very likeable . Will I watch another series.. mmmm probably not.

We liked it a lot and hope the series continues. If it does, I believe it will get even better. The writers have set up the characters quite nicely, but need another season to tie up loose ends with several of them and to resolve the 3 love triangles going on.

There are too many loose ends in this first series, but speaking for myself, no sure I am interested to find out. The husband is losing his pub and the wife, supposedly a righteous person with strong morals, is recklessly in love with an American soldier despite loving her husband and 3 kids. Would have been more convincing if the husband were to be depicted as a brute.

The story of a strong woman who holds the school, her family, and the town together in the wake of US servicemen and women invading their small town. The boy is a wonderful actor; the adults while good actors are written a tiny bit cliche. The poverty, xenophobia, the endless frustration of a people still under a feudal system, and the pettiness of women towards each other because of their powerlessness make this reality-based series sound bleak, but it is the perseverance, hope, and resiliency that draw the viewer into the story and gives us hope. Well worth watching.

I found this story very engaging and well acted . The tale requires viewer participation ,
as it leaves the conclusion up to your imagination ; cynic or romantic .

I found this a very poor production.
