Dutch translation:Two choices...
Explanation:
It all depends how one reads the phrase, but I think the first of my suggestions is the correct one.

Made good = succeeded

1. het buitenmeisje met het gouden hart maakte het

Literally it means 'the country girl succeeded, AND she has a heart of gold'

2. het buitenmeisje maakte het vanwege haar gouden hart

Literally this means 'the country girl succeeded BECAUSE of the heart of gold'

Hope this helps

Luis.
