Storyline

1953. After 20 years living in Europe, Sarah Adams returns to Australia. While working as a nurse on the ocean voyage home, Sarah meets the influential and wealthy Bligh family and discovers a scandalous family secret. In Sydney, Sarah finds her estranged mother still unwilling to forgive her perceived "sin" of converting to Judaism. With no other prospects, Sarah takes up George Bligh's offer of a job in the Inverness hospital, much to the disapproval of George's overbearing mother, Elizabeth. Written by L. Hamre

Best TV Show In Years!
15 March 2015 | by suzesiebertSee all my reviews

This is one of the best TV series to come out in a long time...we live in the States but tend to watch English shows vs American 90% of the time since the reality show trend is a total waste. I'm a Brit expat and husband is American, we both loved this post WW2 drama. The cast is superb and make this series all the more compelling. The 50s' feel is well done, as is the portrayal of the three generations and how they cope with their different - and unexpected yet similar - experiences. Not to spoil it for those who haven't seen it, the series generally takes us to fresh plots/characterizations in ways other shows haven't. Bravo! We saw series 2 on the BBC and anxiously await its screening on Acorn Media next month. Series 3 is apparently being filmed now to be shown later in the year with a 4th to follow. Looking forward to seeing it -- why can't this type of series be shown here at the same time? Why do US audiences have to wait a few years or worse watch a US-made remake that usually flops? Don't the studios understand that we are not idiots and enjoy watching intelligent shows?
