@Susannaf North & South, by John Jakes I think? Patrick Swaze was in the mini-series.
@JanieS Sink Me!

Did I watch the mini-series?!?! My grade 11 English teacher, who was beyond cool, had us start every class by discussing it for 10 minutes the week it was on, because we were all watching it and so was she!
