Blinded by Jealousy
6 June 2011 | by (Roseworthy, South Australia) – See all my reviews

When a ranch of four thousand acres is sold to German immigrants they begin to experience unwelcome events that put their hold on the land in jeopardy.

They try to live in the new world without guns as defense on the property but a night raid by three men on horses sees the end of a lot of hard work as a new building burns.

Tate is constantly blamed for their misfortune and feels compelled to assist the newcomers.

One of the immigrants Paul has a lot to be responsible for and when he goes to blacksmith Ivers to stop the madness he started Paul ends up losing sight of the future he envisioned and tells the truth to Clara and Tate.
