D he will shatter the lonely middle aged spinster's respectable ordered life with a forbidden promise of a very special lov. With the recent passing of Colleen McCullough and seeing her novel Tim on the Kindle Daily Deals I thought it was time I read one of her books Most people have heard of The Thorn Birds however up until now I haven t read any of her booksWhen I started reading Tim I noticed my edition had been published in 2000 so I was expecting a reasonably recent setting What I didn t realise was this novel had been originally published in 1974 so the language used was not what I was expecting I should have guessed with the novel starting out with two women emptying their chamber pots not a present day occurrence in SydneyAt the time Colleen was writing this I was a young boy in mid primary school I had forgotten that the values and beliefs of the day were different to what they are now For example I found the constant use of the word retard disturbing the addressing of adults as Mr Miss or Mrs strange women in their forties having grey hair and being considered old not making sense I realise that women in their forties still have grey hair they just cover it up better these days and the ockerisms just didn t sit right with me But then I realised the setting was in the early seventies and that the character Mary Horton would be three years older than my mother was at the time As such I was able to feel comfortable with the setting and the style of writingThe main story is about the love that develops between Mary a 43 year old spinster and Tim a young man with the body of a Greek god but the I of a child There are other love stories within the book the love of Tim s parents for each other the friendship of Mary and her employer and the caring nature of Mary s neighbourOn the surface Mary seemed to be the one constantly giving of herself with Tim taking from her however without Tim Mary would not have grown and flourished from her grey world to a world of colour Mary had to overcome the prejudices of the time but when I think of it they are still the prejudices of today The only thing that has changed is the need to marry to maintain respectability The age difference and the perception of taking advantage of a disabled person remainsIt is a story of the innocence and vulnerability of Tim and the pure intentions of others clashing with prejudice and their natural instincts however buried they may have been The intentions were not always the right ones but they were always intended in the best interest of Tim I found jealousy to be an emotion that was explored in several places the jealousy of Tim s sister of the attention given to Tim and Tim s jealousy of the attention Mary gave to his fatherColleen McCullough had me hooked right from the first page I can t remember the last time I finished an average sized novel in a matter of hours but I did it with this one I finished the book infused with a feeling of warmth and love I have a fair bit of the cynic in me and tend to erect barriers between myself and the outside world but this book left me feeling good A lot like that warm blanket you pull up around your ears on a cool crisp morningI feel sad that we have lost Colleen and are deprived of of her words and stories Where do all those unwritten stories go the ones that were floating around in her imagination Such a lossWe should be grateful however that we have the ones we do and they will live on in her memory I will be reading of her books

Colleen McCullough is an author I m glad to have finally read This audio was enjoyable a talented narrator that switched from characters seamlessly especially for Tim s character a developmentally delayed adult who is unknowingly trapped in the most handsome body with the mind of a younger child This book was written in the 70 s so it was a blast from the past hearing the word retarded and retard as this was the way back then I found this to be a very well written and lushly descriptive that always captured the beautiful Australian scenery and landscape An immensely talented writer every sentence was worthy of praise Mary is 45 a very well to do spinster typical of the time who forms a strong bond with Tim she falls in love with him from her first site that was from a distance She wasn t to know he was special His physical presence is amazing he was a very handsome man She wasn t disconcerted with people s assumptions on their unusual coupling She took a protective stance and taught him everything she could about life and love She really was very articulate and wise I thought this many times during the dialogue Tim loved her and he was utterly comfortable with her in every way She calls him dear heart it s a sweet sweet love story set in the era of cicadas and lots and lots of tea drinking This may not be overly realistic but a very good and rewarding piece of fiction from a definite Aussie icon
