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

End of 2002 season - a little disappointing.
1 December 2002 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

As most of the other reviewers said, this show started as an enjoyable B-grade show about women running a farm in beautiful South Oz. 2002 started at a cracking pace, with what I thought was a good combination of action, scenery (as in mountains, outdoors, etc), intrigue, and relationships / romance.

But the latter episodes were a little disappointing as the series moved in what I thought was the wrong direction. The "romance" became a little sleazy and overwhelmed every thing else. Whilst it never degenerated into "Sex and the City goes Bush", I feel that it lost some of the initial charm. But hope springs eternal, and we look forward to season 2003.
