Storyline

The bankrupcy of their hardware store forces Jack and Honey Bailey to move their young family to New Bedford, a small town where Jack's affluent family owns a silver mine. When Jack is killed in an accident soon after their arrival, his mother informs Honey that she is no longer welcome in the Bailey home. Knowing that she cannot support her three children on her own, Honey is forced to leave them with her mother-in-law while she looks for work in a nearby town. Set in Ontario in the 1930s, "Wind at My Back" follows Honey, her children and the Bailey family through the era known as the Great Depression. Written by Orson Wright <orwright@hotmail.com>

An amazing series!!
31 December 2002 | by Pear38See all my reviews

This is an excellent series!! Kevin Sullivan proves that he can make wonderful stories truly live. Set in the depression, this series gives you a real look into the hardships of this time period. The set is brought alive with an amazing story of a family who shows that their love and willingness towards each other can keep them together through trying times. The actors and actresses are also amazing and make this series what it is. I recommend this to everyone who wants to watch a story about love, hope, and strength. Great family series!
