When Zoe, black sheep of the Porter family, discovers that her biological father is a Far North Queensland cattleman, her deep desire to meet him takes her from her inner-city life to a job at remote Mullinjim Station.
But Zoe is sworn to secrecy. Her mother, Claire, is afraid to confront the ghosts of her past.
Virginia Fairburn is happily married to Peter 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. 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?
