Mid to Late 1950's Search for Tomorrow Series Memories
30 May 2008 | by monica-murraySee all my reviews

i remember mom would watch SFT when she was still home not working and I'd watch with her. The series started with the Ames family, the father, mother, 2 daughters, although I only remember Amy Ames (Jada Rowland) who wasn't listed in the full cast. The mother died and the father remarried. Later, Amy got involved with a priest (david gale) who almost left the church. she married a man who became crippled and later regained his use of legs. I haven't seen any of this info in years and would love it if someone else remembered this along with more of the story. i really enjoyed that series. thanks for the opportunity to write. I'm very nostalgic at this stage of my life and it brings back fond memories of being home with mom. I wonder whatever happened to Jada Rowland from that series. Thanks for the opportunity to write. Monica Murray
