It’s 1850, and the Noble family have travelled to the other side of the world to start a new life after scandal drove them from their native England.
Pippa Noble is determined to reclaim their honour by making her father’s plan for an outback farm a reality, although her ambition is frowned upon by a society that has very set ideas about a woman’s place. Pippa learns the hard way about the unforgiving nature of the bush, sometimes with devastating consequences.
And when unfortunate circumstance leads to her tending the farm alone, it is the friendship of neighbouring estate owner Gil Ashford that helps her through. Then an unexpected visitor from England arrives, putting Pippa’s dreams in jeopardy. But she refuses to let go. She will hold on to her family’s land, even if it means losing everything else....
