Silver in the Sun




An inspiring Australian story about making the most of life's unexpected opportunities, and about one man's spirited efforts to transform a whole town.

When handsome young Ian Richardson inherits Kanimbla, a vast merino stud property in the Queensland Murrawee district, there's great speculation about whether he'll sell and take the money and run back to England.  But Ian soon proves himself to be a capable boss, earning the respect of his employees, and winning hearts too, especially that of the beautiful Fiona McDonald.

Ian finds Kanimbla threatened by falling wool prices, and works hard to give the property a new direction.  The energy brings is infectious, and when he suggests that the community pull together to rescue their dying township, even the most reluctant sheep farmers and cattlemen stand up to be counted.  Then Ian receives a letter from his parents' estate, and suddenly everything is thrown into question.
