Review by anonymous (posted on 3-Jul-2006)

Perfect example of life in the early 60's where illegitimate child birth could destroy a girls life forever and her devoted family that goes to great lengths to protect their own daughter from this shame. Troy Donahue plays a new love interest to Connie Stevens and through him she learns who she is and what she should do with her life and her babies - brought on by an accident - in which she must divulge the truth to all. Recommend this one for those who love Summer Place.
