I don't normally watch 'alternate universe' videos but the fact that veryval combined two of my very favourite dramas, I just had to watch! Seeing Emily Blunt (The Young Victoria) and Richard Armitage (North & South) paired up had me captivated :)
Storyline explained by veryval:
Many years ago John (A successful cotton mill owner) and Victoria (daughter of a nobleman) were close friends before Victoria and her family left London to settle elsewhere.
During this time a riot broke out at the mill and Margaret , the daughter of a friend of John`s family, saves his life .
He realizes that Margaret is in love with him and after some persuasion from his mother is convinced that the honourable thing to do would be to marry her.
Victoria soon returns to London . John and she both realize that they have feelings for each other but John is already married and Victoria is to be engaged to Albert - a wealthy young Duke.....
(There is no definite ending because I wanted to give it that movie trailer feel ;)
