Set in the southern cane fields of Queensland near Bundaberg, the grand sugar cane plantation ‘Elianne’ has been so named by Big Jim Durham as a tribute to the woman he loves – Elianne Desmarais. It is a story of wealth, power, privilege and betrayal. Over ensuing generations the great love shared between Ellie and Big Jim has become the stuff of family folklore, until their great-granddaughter Kate discovers an unwelcome truth that all was not as it seemed…
