'A true epic . . . It's easy to see why this stunning tale has been called the Australian Gone With the Wind' Daily 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
