Storyline

After the death of his wife and son during childbirth, Claire's father, Jack McLeod, married city girl Ruth Silverman. Tess was the product of this tempestuous but short-lived relationship. Growing up, the two girls had been very close but were separated when Ruth took 5-year-old Tess back to the city. Twenty years later, after Jack's sudden death, his daughters each inherit half of heavily mortgaged Drover's Run. Tess, who recently lost her mother to breast cancer, returns to Drover's in the hopes of cashing out and opening a cafe in the city, but is disappointed to be met with a less-than-rosy financial picture and the open resentment of her older sister. After Claire fires the male workforce, the sisters, with the help of housekeeper Meg Fountain, her daughter Jodi, and local girl Becky, decide to run the property themselves. The tentative -- and presumably temporary -- partnership is the first step in the reunited sisters' effort to heal old wounds, improve their relationship, and... Written by warrior rabbit

Finally, a man-centric episode
1 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, I'm a man that sometimes watches female-centric programming. Mostly because I like to understand the opposite sex, which I love. And, the women on this show are very attractive. But, like most hetero men, don't always understand what's in their heads. So, I thought I could learn a few things while watching this series from down under. Understandably, and based on all the other feedback from this series, it has been given high marks for story, character development, setting, landscape, actor performance, and everything else. All well-deserved. However, I was especially surprised and amazed at a male-centric episode in Season 5, episode 31, titled "Body and Soul" near the end of the season. I want to recognize Fin Edquist as the writer (I looked it up on IMDb.com) It was the best episode I had seen so far. I won't spoil it, but it was just amazing to see what the men of the story could do. They came through for their women, and brothers, and best friends in spades. Just the kind of heart wrenching story even a guy can appreciate. Keep it coming.
