When Major Patrick Duffy's wife Catherine leaves him for another, Patrick is propelled out Sydney and into yet another bloody war. However the battlefields of Africa hold more than nightmarish terrors and unspeakable conditions for Patrick - they bring him in contact with one he thought long dead and lost to him. Back in Australia, the mysterious Michael O'Flynn mentors Patrick's youngest son, Alex, and takes him on a journey to their Queensland property. But will the terrible curse that has inextricably linked the Duffys and Macintoshes for generations ensure that no true happiness can ever come to them? Through the dawn of a new century in a now federated nation, "To Chase the Storm" charts an explosive tale of love and loss, from South Africa to Palestine, from Townsville to the green hills of Ireland.
