Watch The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister
- 1 Season
It's Yorkshire in the 1800s, and Anne Lister is a young orphan of great wealth who has gone to live with her aunt and uncle. They care for her but await the day when she'll marry and hope it'll be to a man of great fortune. Anne has other ideas, however. She's a lesbian, and she is just independent enough to refuse the idea of marrying a man for the sake of security. She records everything that she thinks and does in a diary, but it is highly coded so that those who might read it won't learn her secret.
