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

Brilliant Series - please continue and develop the story
12 March 2016 | by suesadlierSee all my reviews

This series is simply brilliant and I don't say that about many programmes. The acting is extremely good and the characters draw you in and adhere to 'real life' situations and it addresses real issues with sensitivity and great professionalism. With so many 'reality programmes' on with so called 'celebrities', this is truly a breath of fresh air. I like the way it addresses how WWII affected individuals and weaves it into the 50's time-line. It doesn't shirk the difficulties experienced with newly weds, Anna & Gino and George & Olivia, both compelling scenarios. Also, the actress who plays Mrs Bligh has got it just right and demonstrates brilliantly how an individual's character is dynamic and every changing to what life can throw at us with ever changing twists and turns that I believe we all experience in some small or large way. This personalises it to my experiences and touches on a nerve that makes me want to watch the next episode as soon as possible. Thank you all who made this possible.
