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

Should be more series like this
18 December 2014 | by dibble70See all my reviews

This is another fantastic series from Australia. The acting is brilliant and the kind of issues this series deals with are quite hard hitting and thought provoking. It's amazing to think that this was how people were treated in the 1950's and it shows how far we have come over the years in our considerations of other people's lifestyles and religions.

This is such a great series which makes it unbelievable that it's not been renewed for more than 2 seasons. There is so much more that could be done with this series.

This is one of those series where as soon as you have finished watching one episode you immediately want to watch the next and then the next.

You care about what happens to each character and want everything to work out, the baddies are played very well too.

I love this series and I hope and pray that someone with some influence can persuade the powers that be to MAKE MORE SEASONS PLEASE!!
