1871: When Fergus Deagan's wife dies in childbirth, she makes him promise to take their family to Western Australia to join his brother Bram, and also to marry again. Disowned by her father for becoming pregnant, Cara Payton bears a stillborn baby. She's in deep despair, until a plea to wet-nurse a motherless baby gives her life a new purpose. When Fergus proposes marriage, she accepts, and during the voyage to Australia the two draw closer - until Cara's past rears its ugly head and they face a terrible crisis. Fergus and Bram, always rivals, struggle to make friends, while Bram has financial problems and there is no railway where Fergus can find engineering work. Can the two brothers solve their problems? Will the newcomers find a way to build a new life?
