Love of Life was a long running soap that for the first ten years was set in Barrosville and focused on the lives of two sisters, Vanessa Dale and Meg Dale Harper who had very different outlooks on life. Then in 1961 the action shifted to Rosehill, New York when Vanessa married Bruce Sterling.

The series ran until the beginning of 1980 and notched up over 7000 episodes in the process. Episodes were initially 15 minutes long and broadcast live but on 14 April 1958 the episodes went to 30 minutes.

Warren Beatty, Christopher Reeve, Carl Betz, Peter Falk, Anne Jackson, Paul Michael Glaser, Roy Scheider, Bert Convy and Jan Miner were amongst those who appeared on the series.
