I don't know why everyone is giving her low marks. She played the character the way it should have been if you read the books! She portrayed a strong frontier woman taking care of her family. I especially liked the story where she thought she would have to amputate her leg and the struggle she went through spiritually and emotionally to save her life. Thankfully she didn't have to, but Karen did an astounding job with the character with what she was given on script. You work with what you have and direction given to you. Most of the storylines were not given to her they were written for the kids or for Michael/Charles, she was a background player, so she had to deal with what she had and personally I think she did great.
