Praise For The Prodigal Son

"In her enthusiastic style . . . McCullough delves into small town intrigue with well-defined characters and vivid descriptions. . . . Entertaining."

“The novel is a rich, tightly-woven tapestry of colorful characters and intriguing plot . . . Stunning, surprising, culturally shocking, The Prodigal Son is traditional McCullough at her best.”

"Just when it seems obvious who the murderer is, the evidence falls apart and it's back to square one. For those who enjoy drawing room stories, with many and varied characters, this will be an enjoyable read."

"Colleen McCullough proves once again that she’s a master of fiction with a wide ranging imagination in this book."
