Life in the hamlet of Fatherrock, West Yorkshire, Great Britain, had been difficult for Emily Harris even before Jimmy Brayshaw swept her off her feet and into an abusive marriage.
The police superintendent of Fatherrock insisted his men would arrest Jimmy and put him in jail for wife battering--but they never did.
After much soul searching, Emily decides to ensure her own safety by leaving the land of her birth and starting a whole new life in the Australian Outback.
That's where she meets wealthy and charming sheep station owner Dirk Walker, who does indeed offer her a new life.
What Emily doesn't know--until it's too late--is that Dirk's idea of a whole new life for Emily includes his own unbridled love for four OTHER wives!
