In this epic sequel to Adam's Empire, Evan Green returns us to Kalinda, a vast desert sheep station in Australia's outback - the empire founded by Adam Ross.
Adam is living openly on Kalinda with his voluptuous half-caste lover Nellie. But the visit of his old friend Josef Hoffman, son of a Barossa wine-grower, brings trouble in the shape of Sarah Mandelton, a fortune-hunter who instantly sets her sights on Adam. Simultaneously Adam is plagued by a lawyer demanding that his beloved daughter Cassie should be handed over to her maternal grandmother to save the child from 'disgrace'.
Nellie decides that she must leave Kalinda to save Adam further embarrassment. Hurt and angry, he leaves to join the army and serve in World War II. Under fire in Nazi-occupied Greece, Adam encounters the beautiful Melina O'Sullivan, a woman who will become his second wife.
As the decades pass, we follow the richly varied lives of these characters and their descendants. Gradually the fates of younger generations mrge and intertwine spectacularly in this magnificent Australian family saga in the grandest and most colourful scale.
