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

Excellent Series
30 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

This Australian series has an excellent story line, cast, and location. It is just a beautiful story with just enough suspense to keep you wanting more. I am of the age that I lived through these times and prejudices and can truly relate. The 50s were a beautiful and unique postwar period for the entire world. I praise the actors for their ability to draw you into the story and to stir personal emotions. Noni Hazelhurst, as Elizabeth Bligh, is amazing in her portrayal of the matriarch, with her unsuccessful attempts at controlling her family. I have three more episodes to watch and am saddened there aren't more. I like the mid-century staging and costumes. Bravo, and very well done! Thank you.
