She received the script and was offered the role. I was a little cautious about wanting to do science fiction again.
But it was more of a drama story, more of a family story. I liked that and I wanted to work with Spielberg. In August , Drew Roy was cast as Hal Mason, and Peter Shinkoda was cast as Dai.
We even joked about the fact that it was a Steven Spielberg project. We were like, "Oh yeah, I might have a chance. The pilot was filmed in in Oshawa , Ontario , and the rest of the season was shot from July to November of the following year  in Hamilton  and Toronto.

He is clearly suffering from PTSD and other issues. Yet he refuses treatment of any kind and is This is a superb historical novel with tragic themes.
Yet he refuses treatment of any kind and is plagued by nightmares. Lily marries him and she is unaware of his condition until their honeymoon.
Before she met Stephen, Lily was an up and coming singer and chorus girl. Due to personal tragedy, Lily ends up marrying Stephen to survive.
As she is from the working class and the Winters family is upper class, conflicts naturally occur.
Compounded with Stephen's psychological problems and misogynist attitudes and Lily's inexperience, the marriage is immediately plagued by problems.
There are continual themes of marital rape. While Gregory is not graphic in her depictions, it is still distressing material. Gregory excels at describing Stephen's remembrances of the war.
She also gets into the head of all her characters. The reader understands what makes each character tick. Overall, this book is an indictment of the attitudes of the upper class.
When Stephen is observing his wife while she changes their son's diaper, the present day reader understand how warped his sensibilities have become.
As if she were some kind of red-handed nurse, as if she were not a lady at all. Stephen was appalled that Lily should lower herself to be so intimate with the child.
It was worse than servitude, what she chose to do. It was disgraceful that she should do it and feel no shame at being watched.
It is inevitable that this marriage will end in tragedy. Gregory keeps us guessing as to who will be harmed the most. The last few chapters kept the tension building beautifully.
I highly recommend this book to historical fiction and Phillipa Gregory fans even though it is very dark material. Jul 29, Amy John rated it really liked it.
You really have to force yourself to get through the first few chapters of this book. It is a very subtle read with very few climaxes until the ending.
It is basically about a young girl under her mothers care and guidance who at first is a strong influence to the main character but trails away near the end.
It almost as if when she ends, the driver of her husband picks up as her role model. The ending was very surprising with a lot of fanatic and surprising emotions coming from the character, y You really have to force yourself to get through the first few chapters of this book.
The ending was very surprising with a lot of fanatic and surprising emotions coming from the character, you begin to feel for her situation, and pity her predicaments.
I would have liked to see more of the man she was in love with, and what happened thereafter with them, rather than it ended the way it did.
Aug 29, Lindsay rated it it was amazing. I thought this book was terrific. Captain Winters comes home from World War I, accompanied by one of his wartime subordinates who has been rendered mute by the experience.
Both men are severely traumatized by both the trench warfare and by some secret atrocity they committed together.
Captain Winters marries a young and innocent singer, expecting her to somehow rectify his war-induced mental illness. When she, of course, cannot, he becomes increasingly enraged and unhinged until the whole situat I thought this book was terrific.
When she, of course, cannot, he becomes increasingly enraged and unhinged until the whole situation dissolves into tragedy.
Tense storytelling, great character and plot development. May 22, Jackie Weishaar rated it it was amazing. Enjoyed this book. It shows the underbelly of the post WWI era.
I found that I grew very angry at how women were treated at that time. They had very few rights and men could divorce his wife for any reason.
The wife on the other hand rarely had no grounds, and if divorce was pursued they would lose everything including their children.
I was kind of cranky with my husband while I was reading this book. Dec 12, Mrs. The first Phillipa Gregory I've read that is set in relatively modern times.
At first I didn't think I was going to enjoy it, but as the story progressed I became more and more engaged with the characters and really did enjoy it.
It also showed quite a different aspect of "shell shock" to those usually portrayed and how social class and snobbery affected peoples judgement. Jun 12, April Hochstrasser rated it liked it.
My one complaint about this book was that it was too long. I liked the story and the contrast between good and evil.
Sep 21, Susan rated it liked it. Her historical fiction is much better. Retroactively bumping this up from 4. It keeps popping into my head at odd moments, which is generally a sign that it's worth the extra half.
Dec 14, Susan Aldridge rated it it was amazing. Loved all Philippa Gregory's Tudor and Wars of the Roses novels! This is quite a different setting — post WW1 and sees Captain Stephen Winters fall in love with a music hall singer, Lily Valance, believing that if he marries her it will help him heal his war trauma.
What follows is a tense domestic drama as the full extent of Stephen's psychological damage is revealed through his behaviour as he gets used to married life and a son, Christopher, is born.
The fact that his son bears the name of hi Loved all Philippa Gregory's Tudor and Wars of the Roses novels!
The fact that his son bears the name of his brother, who was killed in the war, turns out to be pivotal to the drama.
All the characters — Lily, Stephen, his parents, and Lily's close friend in the music business, Charlie Smith, and her other colleagues are very well drawn.
We experience the stifling atmosphere of an upper-class home of the time which contrasts sharply with the South Coast music hall scenes.
There are also some very grim flashbacks to Stephen's war years and many, many reminder of what faced those coming home from the war during the s.
I was particularly moved by the close relationship between Stephen and his batman 'Coventry' so called because the horrors of war have rendered him mute.
This is essential to a terrific climax, which obviously I won't give away. A great book, although some readers may find it rather harrowing.
Jan 15, Jessica Tucker rated it did not like it Shelves: historical-fiction , romance. How on bloody earth have people given this book five stars?!?!?
Are we as readers supposed to feel empathy for Stephen? Writing a character suffering from PTSD can be so complex and filled with nuance but instead Stephen is a disgusting human being.
Nothing else. WHAT THE GODDAMN HELL IS THAT????? I already hated him before that but sorry, anyone who feels anything for this man should take a serious look at themselves!
Lily is just ridiculous. She makes stupid decisions, allows herself to be mistreated and told what to do.
