Vanessa Stewart (Janine Turner) has the soul of an artist, but her business tycoon father insists that she follow in his footsteps. As a result, Vanessa convinces herself that she wants to be a globetrotting executive, and also that she truly loves the man to whom she is engaged. But while in Venice on a business trip at the behest of her father, Vanessa meets and falls in love with adventurous Irish TV war correspondent Bill Fitzgerald (Paudge Behan). Deciding to kick over the traces, Vanessa is prepared to turn her back on her family obligations and plight her troth with Bill. But Fate, as it often does, takes a hand in matters when Bill is reported killed during a dangerous combat assignment. Based on a novel by Barbara Taylor Bradford (as if the full title of this made-for-TV feature left any doubt), A Secret Affair first aired October 27, 1999 on CBS.

The heroine is a lady who is engaged to someone she doesn't love but of whom her parents approve. She is part of a rich family and travels to find specialty items to sell in the family's retail business. She meet a widower in Italy and they fall in love. Thus begins this tale. This is a good rainy day movie that doesn't tax one's intellect. The characters are not picture perfect but are warm and well developed. One doesn't have to think just feel with this one. It is not for those who are morosely anal.
