Daughters serving as the primary caregivers for an ailing parent show more cardiovascular stress than do wives caring for their ailing husbands, according to a new study by researchers at Stanford.
Compared with wives, daughters caring for a relative with dementia in their own homes experienced measurably greater increases in heart rate and blood pressure during interactions with the ailing relative, the researchers found.
She speculated that daughters may carry a heavier burden as caregivers because they tend to be younger, with independent lives, and may not have bargained for life as a caretaker.

Instead, she writes a novel that is a collection of brilliant character sketches which together form a novel about the joys and sorrows of the people of Hollingford, and the story of a young girl's growth and change.

Debuting November 28, 1999, over BBC1, the four-part British miniseries Wives and Daughters was the second of two TV adaptations of Elizabeth Gaskell's unfinished novel (the first aired in 1972).
Inasmuch as author Gaskell passed away before concocting a solution to this romantic triangle, it was up to screenwriter Andrew Davies to come up with a happy (or at least satisfying) denouement.
In America, Wives and Daughters was seen as part of PBS' Masterpiece Theatre anthology beginning April 2, 2001.

The arrival of Cynthia, Hyacinth’s daughter, in the second episode brings Molly and Cynthia together, who then become good friends.

Respectable, event eminent citizens, Romanist and Protestant, place their daughters, the pride of the households, in convents for educational purposes, It is probable that in many such cases the standing of the parents secures the safety of the daughter.
But it would be well for these well meaning parents to reflect, upon the fact that the doors of these convents arte closed; that evil has prevailed in many of them, and that there is a grave reason to fear its prevalence at all.

Andrew Davies' 1999 adaptation of Mrs Gaskell's Wives and Daughters was hailed as the rediscovery of a "forgotten" classic novel and found the BBC on the crest of a wave with costume dramas--led by Pride and Prejudice.
Wives and Daughters is one of the best of the BBC's literary adaptations of the last 20 years or so (just behind Persuasion and Middlemarch for me) and far superior to the more recent adapation of Gaskell's North and South.
Francesca Annis (Clare Gibson) and Keely Hawes (her daughter, Cynthia) are perfectly suited as mother and daughter: you can grasp the physical and characteristic similarities.
