The Thorn Birds
A love story that starts when Meggie Cleary is nothing more than a young girl and falls under the charm of Father Ralph. Spanning through the years,
Meggie and Father Ralph fall helplessly in love, a love forbidden by Father Ralph's faith. Meggie marries Luke, a man with big dreams and ideas, but
no ambition to follow them through. After the birth of her first child, Meggie heads for a private holiday, followed by Father Ralph where their love
is finally allowed free reign.
Father Ralph now in Rome knows nothing of the son he sired with Meggie and Meggie will not share her secret with him. Over the years, you follow the
lives and loves of the entire Cleary family as they struggle with the farm, the war, and themselves.
It was made into a movie but it was called a television mini-series
