I loved the movie, and this is pretty much a play or movie script--a very good representation of the movie.

This is the original screenplay for the fantastic film. It has lots of insights into characterizations and the motivation behind the story. It also has wonderful casting notes and some photographs.

Good companion to the movie, as there were subtleties I didn't get, and some of the dialogue was too quiet.

Engrossing. I thought better than the movie...more context.

This book was pretty amazing. Found it at the goodwill for 50 cents and decided to give it a whirl and it was well worth it.

This is written in playscript and has a well written story. I couldn't put it down and finished in just a few hours.

If you like romance books you'll like this one and this is coming from someone that stays away from romance books.

Give this book a try; it's well worth the read =^_^+

Campion releases the novel form of her Academy Award-winning screenplay about a mute woman forced into an arranged marriage in 19th-century New Zealand. The book is terrific-beautifully written-great plot and thoroughly enjoyable.
