Description

Colleen McCullough's long out of print first novel now available for the first time in decades: an uplifting, unconventional love story that was hugely controversial on its release and became a major movie starring Mel Gibson. Forty-three-year-old Mary Horton lives in a quiet, middle-class suburb on Sydney's North Shore. A straight-laced, emotionally distant spinster, Mary has worked hard to make a life for herself, but her idea of 'life' does not include personal relationships. With no partner and no friends, Mary has no plans to let anybody into her solitary life. Tim Melville is a twenty-five-year-old labourer with the body and face of a Greek god, but the mind of a child. A gentle outcast in a cruel, unbending world, Tim has a loving family, but is often derided and taken advantage of by his so-called friends. By chance, one summer morning Tim meets Mary and what begins as a day's labour for the kind-hearted young man becomes a life-changing relationship for both of them. 'Accomplished, sensitive and wise ...a love story with a difference' Publishers Weekly 'A wonderful novel about human nature' Beyond New Words
