    Colleen McCullough is an author I'm glad to have finally read This audio was enjoyable a talented narrator that switched from characters seamlessly especially for Tim's character a developmentally delayed adult who is unknowingly trapped in the most handsome body with the mind of a younger child This book was written in the 70's so it was a blast from the past hearing the word 'retarded' and 'retard' as this was the way

    Tim is one of those stories lost but not forgotten in time and I actually found it uite the page turner I'm happy I can check it off my tbr nowColleen McCullough writes characters you can care about and her writing was descriptive in this but not tedious Anything from the scenery to the food to the clothes—you feel like you're there in Australia with themSide note one of Mel Gibson's very first movie roles and he was so cute in it ;
