The Thorn Birds book has not only been made into a movie, but a television mini-series and a spin-off tv mini-series dealing with “the missing years”.
Based on The Thorn Birds, a best-selling book, the story of a young girl of Irish heritage with a hard life in Australia who has a crush on a priest and grows up to have an affair with the priest is a compelling story, but hardly an endorsement of the Church’s policy of clerical celibacy. The book goes into greater depth and has more heart and soul than the movie, but a negative portrayal of a mean nun who teaches at the Catholic school.
