Tim - Colleen McCullough I loved the writing in this book. This is my first McCullough book and I just know I will be reading more of her. This book is about the beautiful but mentally challenged Tim who meets the lonely spinster Mary Horton. Although they’re an unlikely pair, from their very first meeting they have a beautiful connection together. I did not think that the relationship would exactly work but with they fit together perfectly. There was an innocence and vulnerability about their interaction that really touched me.
