Square and boxy, bossy Oriel Lamb is a force of nature. She bears misfortune with a stoic intensity that has seen her view life itself as a war that she will not lose. She lost her siblings to a bushfire when still a young girl, but her unshakable faith helped her respond to this tragedy with strength - and she emerged as an adult with an unstoppable work ethic that often hides a genuine depth of feeling for people and family. When her son Fish nearly drowned, Oriel believed God had granted her a miracle by bringing him back to life. But on realising he had been left brain damaged, she turned her back on God in anger. It takes many years at Cloud St and a surprising string of events for Oriel to complete her journey back to faith and a realisation that the real miracle is life itself.
Kerry Fox is Oriel Lamb
