Item description for El Pajaro Espino/ the Thorn Birds (Narrativa (Punto de Lectura)) by Colleen McCullough...
This is the chronicle of three generations of Clearys, ranchers carving lives from a beautiful, hard land. A sweeping saga of dreams, struggles, dark passions, and forbidden love in the Australian Outback, it is the story of an only child, Meggie, and her lifelong relationship with the haunted priest Father Ralph de Bricassart-an intense joining of two hearts and souls that dangerously oversteps sacred boundaries of ethics and dogma. McCullough's acclaimed masterwork remains a monumental achievement-a landmark novel to be read again and again. Description in Spanish: En la Australia casi salvaje de los primeros aos del siglo XX, se desarrolla una trama de pasin y tragedia que afecta a tres generaciones. Una historia de amor --la que viven Maggie y el sacerdote Ralph de Bricassart-- que se convierte en renuncia, dolor y sufrimiento, y que marca el alto precio de la ambicin y de las convenciones sociales. Una novela que supuso un verdadero fenmeno y que ha alcanzado la categora de los clsicos.
