David L. Wolper - Offical Website of Television and Film Producer




On the Australian sheep station Drogheda, we return to the lives of Meggie and her family during the latter part of WWII, Luke O'Neill comes back and claims his son for himself when Meggie refuses to leave Drogheda and return to married life with Luke. Ralph de Bricassart, now an Archbishop, also returns to Australia on church business but is drawn back into Meggie's life--and love--in her legal battle for custody of Dane.
