From author of THE THORN BIRDS, one of the biggest-selling books of all time, comes this epic saga of love, betrayal and redemption in 1920s Australia.

The four Latimer sisters are famous throughout New South Wales for their beauty, wit, ambition and sisterly love. They thought that would never change.

But then they left home to train as nurses, swapping the feather beds of their father's townhouse for the spartan bunks of nursing accommodation. And now, as the Depression casts its shadow across Australia, they must confront their own secret desires as the world changes around them. Will the sisters find the independence they crave? Or is life – like love – always bittersweet?

Colleen McCullough was born in New South Wales in 1937. A neuroscientist by training, she worked in hospitals in Australia, the UK and USA before writing her first novel. She lives with her husband on Norfolk Island in the South Pacific.
