Nola JohnsPlayed by Greta Scacchi
Nola’s story is a riches to rags one that begins with a husband and a homestead. But when his family cuts him out of his share of the land, he and Nola join the migration west to seek fortune and a fresh start. Instead, a tragedy leaves the beautiful Nola widowed and penniless. It’s not long before Big Rump Kate forces Nola into prostitution. Just when she thinks things can’t get worse, outlaw Ed “Big Ears” Bywater returns to town. His obsession nearly killed her once, and she’s not so sure he won’t finish the job this time.
