This family saga, set in the Australian outback, tells the story of Maggie Clearly and the man who loves her, Father Ralph Bricassart. "Penguin Readers" is a series of simplified novels, film novelizations and original titles that introduce students at all levels to the pleasures of reading in English. Originally designed for teaching English as a foreign language, the series' combination of high interest level and low reading age makes it suitable for both English-speaking teenagers with limited reading skills and students of English as a second language. Many titles in the series also provide access to the pre-20th century literature strands of the National Curriculum English Orders. "Penguin Readers" are graded at seven levels of difficulty, from "Easystarts" with a 200-word vocabulary, to Level 6 (Advanced) with a 3000-word vocabulary. In addition, titles fall into one of three sub-categories: "Contemporary", "Classics" or "Originals". At the end of each book there is a section of enjoyable exercises focusing on vocabulary building, comprehension, discussion and writing. Some titles in the series are available with an accompanying audio cassette, or in a book and cassette pack. Additionally, selected titles have free accompanying "Penguin Readers Factsheets" which provide stimulating exercise material for students, as well as suggestions for teachers on how to exploit the Readers in class.
Good. A sound copy with only light wear. Overall a solid copy at a great price! All orders guaranteed and ship within 24 hours. Your purchase supports More Than Words, a nonprofit job training program for youth, empowering youth to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business.
Great story but very disappointed with the copy I received as it clearly displayed that the book would come with the cover and it didn't.

This book deserves to be archived as one of the best works in the century! Any reader should have a copy as a collection. The saga itself may be true itself...

Thumbs Up, Hats Off
Truly a remarkable novel. Its the basic Priest's path to God. Does he give up the love of a woman for the love of divinity and is there really a difference? In the end he chooses the woman, thus falling from the pedestal he placed himself on, and in being humbled, is closer to God
