Treasured by readers around the world, this is the sweeping saga of three generations of the Cleary family. Stoic matriarch Fee, her devoted husband, Paddy, and their headstrong daughter, Meggie, experience joy, sadness and magnificent triumph in the cruel Australian outback. With life's unpredictability, it is love that is their unifying thread, but it is a love shadowed by the anguish of forbidden passions. For Meggie loves Father Ralph de Bricassart, a man who wields enormous power within the Catholic church ... As powerful, moving and unforgettable as when it originally appeared, The Thorn Birds remains a novel to be read ... and read again. 'A heart-rending epic ... truly marvellous' Chicago Tribune 'A perfect read ... The kind of book the word blockbuster was made for' Boston Globe 'Beautiful ... compelling entertainment' New York Times
