Description

‘A true epic . . . It’s easy to see why this stunning tale has been called the Australian Gone With the WindDaily Mail

‘One of the biggest-selling, most widely read books in the history of fiction’ Observer

In the rugged Australian Outback, three generations of Clearys live through joy and sadness, bitter defeat and magnificent triumph – driven by their dreams, sustained by remarkable strength of character and torn by dark passions, violence and a scandalous family legacy of forbidden love.

It is a poignant love story, a powerful epic of struggle and sacrifice, a celebration of individuality and spirit. Most of all, it is the story of the Clearys’ only daughter, Meggie, who can never possess the man she so desperately adores – Ralph de Bricassart. Ralph will rise from parish priest to the inner circles of the Vatican … but his passion for Meggie will follow him all the days of his life.

A timeless epic romance – a battle between faith and the heart
