When the Templeton family from England takes up
residence in a stately home in country Australia, they
set the locals talking – and with good reason. From the
outside, the seven Templetons seem so bohemian,

neighbours, single mother Nina Donovan and her young son
Tom. Before long, the two families' lives become
entwined in unexpected ways, to the delight of Gracie,

In the years that follow, the relationships between the
Templetons and the two Donovans twist and turn in
unpredictable and life-changing directions, until a
tragedy tears them all apart. What will it take to bring
them together again?

story about the perils and pleasures of love, friendship
