A Place To Call Home (AU)
Set in rural Australia in the 1950s, A Place to Call Home is a sweeping drama of one woman’s journey to heal her soul and of a privileged family’s confrontation with a changing era. A romantic saga based in the fictional town of Inverness – home to the Bligh family estate Ash Park - with a landscape as vast and dramatic as the people who live there.
Born in 1914, Jack is the son of a local Inverness man who had worked on the Bligh estate before his birth.
Both his parents went to early graves, his father from drink and his mother from a broken spirit and heart.
Juggling his schoolwork and his farm duties, Jack came to the attention of Elizabeth Bligh.
Elizabeth took a shine to him, and her interest only deepened when she learned that his true passion was for medicine; but while he had the grades and the intelligence for the vocation, it was a future his means denied him.
Elizabeth took the shrewd step of offering to pay for his medical education, in return for his assurance that he would return to Inverness to work at the hospital she and her husband had built.
It was an offer he could not refuse. Thus it was through Elizabeth’s generosity that Jack began studying medicine.
