Jim Carver -- a tough, resolute war veteran, he returns from the trenches to build a better life for his family to find his wife dead. Archie Carver -- Jim's eldest son, smart, ruthless, he has a quick eye for financial profits and beautiful women. Elaine Frith -- seductive and ambitious, she uses her charms to snare the man she thinks will give her wealth. The First World War ends and the soldiers return to the peaceful Avenue. On the surface their homes look just the same but behind the carefully tended front gardens everything has changed and their families' lives in the next twenty years will be as turbulent as any they have known.
