Four Seasons (TV 2008, 4 x 90 Minutes)



»Four Seasons« is the present-day story of the reunion of three women across three generations of the Combe family, owners of Endellion, a large country estate on the beautiful Cornish coastline.

Julia, Charlotte and Abby — grandmother, mother and granddaughter — have been separated for many years as a result of unjust treatment by Stephen Combe, heir to the Endellion estate and the ex-husband of Julia.

Dark family secrets also haunt Alexander Combe, the head of the family who, together with his youngest son Charles, attempts to reunite the family. 

When Julia is widowed, Abby sets out on a journey to find out the truth about her parents and grandparents — a journey that takes her through the beautiful landscape of Cornwall and the bright lights of London, encountering on the way the trials of betrayal and the pleasures of love.

The interwoven stories of these three women and their triumphant reunion in happiness is the heart of this emotional family saga.
