2. The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough

The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough

This story is about the forbidden love between a woman and a priest.

It's a great read for those of you who like stories set in the olden days, because the majority of the novel takes place in 1915 in Australia.

However, it spans several generations, into the post World War II era.
