It just blew me away
31 August 2019 | by fancynancy-977-996373See all my reviews

Rita is a perfectly imperfect character. This series shows people who despite what life has thrown at them can shine. Many reviewers did not like season 4 but I thought it was the jewel in the crown. The final scene had me in happy tears. I will rewatch this series every year and love it more each time.
