Storyline

Following the death of her mother, Tess Silverman travels to Drover's Run, the farm where she spent the first few years of her life. Drover's is a rural cattle property in South Australia, to reconnect with her only remaining family, her father Jack and her sister Claire, whom she has not seen in 20 years, since her mother left Jack and moved to the city, and taking Tess with her. Tess arrives in a complex situation and finds herself meeting an adoring father but a hostile sister whom she no longer knows and who resents her sudden arrival and even quicker ability to win over Jack, something she herself has never been able to accomplish. Tess is content with making her visit a short one and continue on to Venice to move on with her life but the sudden death of their father forces Tess and Claire to overcome their differences and the many obstacles before them to realize their father's dream of running Drover's Run together.

i love McLeod's
14 February 2009 | by arizzle_babySee all my reviews

well. lately I've discovered that i have an obsession with McLeod's daughters . it is the best pro-gramme EVER And i cannot believe its already been the final episode, my favorite character was DEFFINTILY Grace she made me cry SO much. I'm young but since grace(Abi Tucker) came into the show, i REALLY want to met her, and would do anything to get the chance. McLeod's has made an impact on my life, just listening to the quotes that are said etc, if Grace ever reads this , which i doubt . she should no that she is a awesome actress, and i would love to have the chance to meet her, also in the final episode how Marcus and Ingrid got together, that was a HUGE Mstake Grace and Marcus should have been the couple !! i love McLeod's daughters and would do anything to get the chance to talk to grace Stevie or Marcus. ANYTHING. I hope they read this . the makers have done such a awesome job and they shouldn't have made it end . it was awesome. i live in new Zealand, the wiararapa and go to kuranui college only as a year 10 . and i really want to meet all of the crew. love you . xx ox
