Meanwhile, her best friend, Eliza Miller, has dreams of her own - to become one of Australia's first female doctors. However when she returns to Millbrooke from her medical studies at the Sorbonne, she finds the job she thought was hers has been taken . by a man.

Over the course of two turbulent years both women will face difficult choices - love or duty? Career or marriage? Is it possible to have it all .?
