Publisher's Summary

Tim was a beautiful young man with the mind of a child. Mary Horton was a lonely and bitter middle-aged spinster. They were outcasts in a cruel, unbending world – until their lives were joined and forever altered by the forbidden promise of a very special love.

Absolutely brilliant

Only occasionally do I feel a bit sad when a book ends - but this is one of them. I like books that I can really think about between listening and this is one of them. Really beautifully written and extremely well narrated by Kate Hood. Would highly recommend.

Tim

I enjoyed the book as a lifelike happening and concern for a fellow human being.

Delightful story - so Australian

A story full of warm characters that challenges convention in any time. This is the first book of Colleen McCullough's I have read - it did not disappoint!
