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 set herself up. With no partner and no friends, her idea of 'life' does not include personal relationships.

Tim Melville is a 25-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, Timhas a loving family, but is often derided and taken advantage of.

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.

Uplifting, unconventional and hugely controversial on its release, Tim became a major movie starring Mel Gibson.
