"One of the most beautifully written books I've ever read. McCullough's prose is so lyrical, but her voice so strong. She weaves together a tapestry of love and jealousy, age and heartbreak, and friendship and family."--Celeste Ng, author of "Code Name Verity"
I needed to write a literature review about The Ladies Of Missalonghi and Lady Of Avalon books. I read The Ladies Of Missalonghi with pleasure and got an A+ for my book review. Colleen McCullough is a wonderful writer.
