The thorn birds by Ann Ward( Visual )

42 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Australia, the story covers 42 years in the life of Ralph de Bricassart (Richard Chamberlain in an Emmy-winning performance), a Roman Catholic priest engaged in a constant struggle between his calling and his carnal desires. In the three-hour opening episode, originally telecast by ABC on March 27, 1983, young Father Ralph becomes the object of desire for powerful sheep rancher Mary Carson (Barbara Stanwyck, who also won an Emmy), while the priest himself expresses concern and sometimes more than concern for the well being of Mary's niece, Meggie Cleary (played as a youngster by Sydney Penny and as an adult by Rachel Ward, in her first American TV role). In part two, which aired March 28, 1983 and which, like the subsequent third episode, runs two hours, a cataclysmic brush fire destroys Mary Carson's ranch. Later, having already succumbed to their mutual passion, Father Ralph and Meggie experience an uncomfortable reunion, and later still, the politically ambitious Ralph forms a strong and beneficial alliance with Archbishop Contini-Verchese (Christopher Plummer), one of Rome's most influential religious leaders. Part three, which aired March 29, 1983, finds a disillusioned Meggie entering into an unhappy marriage, ending up a housemaid on a Queensland sugar-cane plantation. Her subsequent pregnancy is but one of the intriguing and surprising plot developments in this crucial episode. The miniseries concluded with part four, first telecast in a three-hour slot on March 30, 1983. Covering a timespan of nearly 30 years (1935-1962), this final chapter focuses on the lives of Meggie's children flamboyant aspiring actress Justine (Mare Winningham) and would-be priest Dane (Philip Anglim), neither of which have any inkling (at least, not at first) of the past relationship between their mother and Cardinal De Bricassart, aka Father Ralph
