Summary
'You really think Meggie doesn't love you? She doesn't want Luke, she wants a father for the children. All you would have to do is say one word and she would be with you in a heartbeat.' Remember Meggie, and Father Ralph, and Paddy and Luke and the rest? The Thorn Birds is the unforgettable story of the Clearys, spanning three generations. Now, 28 years after it first took the world by storm, Colleen McCullough's sweeping family saga of dreams, titanic struggles, dark passions, and forbidden love in the Australian Outback returns to enthral a new generation. As powerful, moving, and unforgettable as when it originally appeared, it remains a monumental literary achievement - a landmark novel to be read...and read again!
Summary
