Three women. Two families. One secret. When Zoe, the restless black sheep of the Porter family, discovers that her biological father is a north Queensland cattleman, her deep desire to meet him takes her from her inner-city life to a job as a stock camp cook. Zoe's mother, Claire, fears the truth could ruin her husband's high-profile political career, and swears Zoe to secrecy. But in confronting the ghosts of her past, Claire is also forced to reassess her marriage. Virginia Fairburn is happily married to Peter, owner of Mullinjim Station, but she's always lived with the shadow of the other woman her husband loved and lost. On the muster at Mullinjim, Zoe meets brooding cattleman Mac McKinnon, who knows from painful experience that city girls can't cope in the bush. Every instinct tells Mac that Zoe is hiding something, and as the pressure to reveal her mother's secret builds, Zoe fears she must confide in him or burst. The truth has the potential to destroy two families. Or can it clear the way for new beginnings?
