Storyline

Wealthy but plain heiress Stephanie Harper marries handsome tennis player Greg Marsden, and thinks she has found true love. That is, until her husband makes a play for her best friend and plots to get rid of Stephanie so he can take her money by pushing her off a boat and into the waiting jaws of a crocodile. However, she survives the attack and, although horribly disfigured, spends months undergoing surgery to have her face repaired by a brilliant plastic surgeon. However, the now beautiful Stephanie no longer looks like the woman she once was. She returns to the city under the name Tara Welles to seek vengeance on her husband, who has told everyone she was taken by a crocodile, and is now waiting to inherit all of her money. Now, she can have revenge... Written by Sam Yeo <yosam2010@hotmail.com>

What Fun!
2 January 2002 | by (Carmel) – See all my reviews

This Australia soap turns out to be quite a good view. If you want to see how romance, betrayal, murder, plastic surgery, and a grand revenge (of course!) add up to a throughly delightful evening, then try to track down a copy! Stand-outs include the crocodile attack, Rebecca Gilling as a fashion model, the final showdown between Tara, Greg, and Jilly, and last but certainly not least: Wendy Hughes' show stealing, though sometimes over-the-top performance as Jilly Stewart, the villainess.
