Synopsis:

Not since The Thorn Birds has Colleen McCullough written a novel of such broad appeal about a family and the Australian experience.

When Alexander Kinross -- remembered in his native Scotland only as a shiftless boilermaker's apprentice and godless rebel -- summons his bride Elizabeth Drummond to Australia, his Scottish relatives realize that Kinross has made a fortune in the goldfields and is now a man to be reckoned with.

The intimacies of marriage do not prompt Alexander to enlighten his new bride about his past life -- or even his present one. Elizabeth has no idea that he still has a mistress -- the sensuous, tough, outspoken Ruby Costevan, whom Alexander has made partner in his company, rapidly expanding its interests far beyond gold.

Captured by their very different natures, Alexander resolves to have both Elizabeth and Ruby. Although Ruby loves Alexander desperately, Elizabeth does not. Elizabeth bears him two daughters: the brilliant Nell, so much like her father; and the beautiful, haunting Anna. Thwarted in his desire for a son, Alexander turns to Ruby's son as a possible heir to his empire.

The Touch is at once a love story and a family saga, replete with the desperate need of men and women, rootless in a strange land to create new roots.

About the Author: Colleen McCullough is an Australian. While pursuing a career in neurophysiology, she lived and worked in England, then in the United States. Though she had always written novels for her own amusement, financial need spurred her to abandon fancy and write a novel designed for publication. The result was Tim in 1974; The Thorn Birds followed in 1977; thereafter came eleven novels, a cookbook, and her official biography of Sir Roden Cutler V.C. The Touch is her sixteenth book. She lives with her husband, Ric Robinson, on Norfolk Island in the South Pacific.
