1890 Western Australia. Sarette Maitland is orphaned when her father dies from a snake bite on the goldfields. She is rescued by wealthy adventurer, John Kern, and takes the place in his heart of his own dead daughter. Several years later he sends her to England, to learn the manners society expects of a beautiful young woman. Sarette finds herself in the care of Magnus, John's heir. When he learns that Sarette has been left a considerable fortune by his uncle, both his honesty and his heart are put to the test.
