Passions set an untamed land ablaze! A young fortune-hunter finds only dark secrets Down Under. In 1831, young Irishman Charles Adare (Peter Cousens, Return to Eden) arrives in New South Wales, Australia, eager to make his fortune-and make it fast. But what he finds are secrets that won't stay buried. Based on the popular novel by Helen Simpson and filmed on location in Australia, this is an engrossing saga in the tradition of Rebecca.
Adare is swept into the private world of wealthy land baron Samson Flusky (John Hallam, The Pallisers) and his mentally unbalanced wife, Lady Henrietta (Lisa Harrow, Kavanagh Q.C.). The gruff, unmannered Flusky hopes the well-bred Adare can bring Henrietta out of her mysterious dark moods and back into society. But her manic behavior masks something unspeakable. As Adare attempts to help this haunted woman, greed, jealousy, and a secret passion threaten to destroy them both.
