I absolutely love this movie. Linda Evans was fantastic in her role, playing a single mother, then newly married and suddenly widowed, caretaker of a ranch and stepdaughters, all the while learning to live in the Australian outback. Snakes, drought, heat, unfriendly neighbors, fire and an unexpected new love were written into this story very well. I enjoyed seeing the real Australia (as opposed to a back lot setting), and it made this movie more believable. The nighttime fight scene seemed just so-so until I heard Linda talking about it on a talk show: filmed till early hrs of morning, in very chilly temperatures. This movie has not been on TV in a very long time. I had taped it the last time it was scheduled, but unfortunately the TV film kept messing up and some good parts that I remember are not on my video, like most of the fire that nearly killed her son and the explosion that hurt her friend. Linda's character showed that perseverance (and sometimes stubborness) will get us through some very difficult situations. For me, this is a very enjoyable movie, with a very talented and beautiful actress, and I'd watch it repeatedly if I could.
