~ THE GRAZIER'S WIFE ~
Three strong women, one
shattering secret, and a family with the courage to change
For three generations of Australian
women, becoming a grazier's wife has meant very different things.
For Stella in 1946, it was a compromise in
the aftermath of a terrible war.
For Jackie in the 1970s, it was a
Cinderella fairytale with an outback prince.
While for Alice in 2015, it is the promise
of a bright new future.
Decades earlier, Stella was desperate to
right a huge injustice, but now a long-held family secret threatens to tear the
Drummond family of Ruthven Downs apart. On the eve of a special birthday
reunion, with half the district invited, the past and the present collide,
passions are unleashed and the shocking truth comes spilling out.
From glamorous pre-war Singapore to a vast
cattle property in Queensland's Far North, this sweeping, emotional saga tests
the beliefs and hopes of three strong women as they learn how to hold on to
loved ones and when to let go.
