A Place To Call Home
Sarah Adams (played by Marta Dusseldorp), until recently a nurse in a London hospital, is a mysterious woman who keeps her past and secrets close.
Tragic news from her beloved Aunt in Australia causes her to make that long delayed return journey to a country inhabited by the mother who rejected her for her life choices. And she now carries the secrets and scares of her suffering in World War II.
In returning, she finds another country from the one she left behind. She finds an Australia perched on the verge of the social change of the 1950s.
Working her passage home aboard an ocean liner, Sarah becomes involved in the lives of the Blighs, a wealthy Australian pastoralist family, lead by the fiercely protective matriarch Elizabeth Bligh (played by Noni Hazlehurst).
Despite developing an immediate connection with gentle and charming widower George, it is only when Sarah discovers a Bligh family secret that her future becomes forever linked with theirs.
It is time for Sarah to face life again and begin her journey towards healing and hopefully finding A Place to Call Home.
