The Ladies of Missalonghi

Author: Colleen McCullough Format: Paperback Release Date: 06/01/2022

An endearing tale, full of wit, warmth and romance, from the bestselling author of The Thorn Birds. The Hurlingford family have ruled the small town of Byron, nestled in the Blue Mountains, for generations. Wealthy, powerful and cruel, they get what they want, every time. Missy Wright lives with her widowed mother and crippled aunt in genteel poverty. Hurlingfords by birth, all three are victim to the family's rule of inheritance: the men take it all. Plain, thin and unforgivably single, it seems Missy's life is destined to be dreary. But then a stranger arrives in town. A divorcee from Sydney. And she opens Missy's eyes to the possibility of a happy ending.

Author: Colleen Mccullough Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/03/2015

The story of three women in the Blue Mountains in Victorian Australia, all without their men and all hampered by the social restrictions of the time.  A tale of genteel poverty, of small-town pettiness and of overcoming prejudices.  It is an easy read, not as deep as many of her tales and certainly not a The Thorn Birds, but follow the exploits of Missy desperately fighting against the system and you will have a thoroughly good time.  Sadly the author has recently died.
