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.

Colleen McCullough was born in Wellington, New South Wales. She worked in neurophysiology at Yale Medical School for ten years, where she wrote the record-breaking, international bestseller The Thorn Birds.

'McCullough is terrific...Her characters quiver with life' The New York Times Book Review
