TV Movie identification

Crap tv-movie identification filter.

An American TV movie most likely made in the 90's. It had a ridiculous, weepy title along the lines of "The Emancipation of Cathy Lee." The female lead had dark curly hair and played a lonely woman writing to a prisoner while also possibly looking after her disabled parent. I think some cringe-inducing scenes featured her reading out the letters. She lived in a large house with an elaborate conservatory/greenhouse where the climax took place, involving a fire and the convict finally tracking her down (he wasn't the understanding soul she thought he was, after all.) I thought it may have starred Richard Thomas but after searching I appear to be confusing it with "Down, Out and Dangerous," so no idea of the cast, sorry. Any ideas?

If you turn up empty here, I'd email the Lifetime network directly (but adopt a more neutral tone to increase the likelihood of getting an answer).

I've found two blogs dedicated to reviewing lifetime movies. Strangers Beside Me is one I stumbled upon through google, and uses categories, while Lifetime, Wow! has more in-depth, sarcastic reviews, but no categories (found via the blue, and the reason I googled for this in the first place). You could also try the IMDB advanced search and test things in the Word Search field.
