The Thorn Birds (Mass Market)
Did you know...before the TV mini-series this book was a best selling
saga of Australia? Before Dan Brown detailed the papal hierarchy in Angels and Demons,
McCullough exposed the politics and policies of the College of
Cardinals. Before preistly misconduct became a worldwide scandal, Father
Ralph and Maggie shared a connection we all rooted for. If you've never
read this classic romance, treat yourself now. Envision Richard
Chamerlain and Rachel Ward as Father Ralph and Maggie - inspired
I've read most everything McCullough has written throughout the years:
Australian historical novels; Detective Carmine Delmonico mysteries; and
even a Pride and Prejudice spin-off. I am saving her First Man in Rome series for my old age (haha!). She also has a new Australian novel, Bittersweet, her first romance since The Thorn Birds.
—New York Times
“A heart-rending epic…truly marvelous.”
One of the most beloved novels of all time, The Thorn Birds, Colleen McCullough’s sweeping family saga of dreams, titanic struggles, dark passions, and forbidden love in the Australian Outback, returns to enthrall a new generation.
