LoveReading Expert Review of The Ladies of Missalonghi

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.

Sarah Broadhurst

The Ladies of Missalonghi Synopsis

From the internationally bestselling author of The Thorn Birds comes this charming novella about love, friendship and quiet rebellion. 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. This is an endearing tale, full of wit, warmth and romance, from the bestselling author of The Thorn Birds. 'A must read for all fans of romantic fiction' Daily Mail 'Extraordinary ... This is McCullough at her wicked best' Daily Post 'Seductive and satisfying ... Readers will want to devour it in one sitting' Publishers Weekly
