In New Zealand he takes a job on a Hawkes Bay sheep farm, where he quickly adapts to the life and falls in love with Hazel, joint owner of a nearby station.

It transpires that the manager was the person who committed the crime back in England and, after he is arrested, the young couple are happily united.
