STORY A string of tragedies leaves a young American boy the sole heir to his family's estate in the UK. It is an adventure of ups and downs for him to leave is friends behind and be forced to learn the life of an aristocrat. CHARACTERS This series freatures Ceddie, a sweetheart who only sees the good in people, making him one of the only people to ever treat his grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt, with honest compassion and trust. His grandpa is quite selfish and violent to start, but somehow the unrequited love coming from his grandchild sparks a change of heart in the old man. It isn't a quick process however, and the Earl's stubbornness causes Ceddie much hardship (ie: being separated from his mother whom the Earl refuses to forgive). You can't keep this kid from helping out and trying to take care of things his own way, and it's great. OVERALL This was a pleasant series to watch - the attraction being its simplicity and seeing the pure heart of Ceddie influencing those around him. He's more of an angel than a child really. It gets a little slow toward the middle - more time spent on the drama at of the finale might have been a better use of its limited episodes. However the heartwarming moments throughout was worth these lulls.
