    DescriptionIn 1788 Daniel Rooke sets out on a journey that will change the course of his life. As a lieutenant in the First Fleet, he lands on the wild and unknown shores of New South Wales. There he sets up an observatory to chart the stars. But this country will prove far more revelatory than the stars above. Based on real events, The Lieutenant tells the unforgettable story of Rooke's connection with an Aboriginal child - a remarkable friendship that resonates across the oceans and the centuries.

    Brilliant book5

    Sarah Nattey This book was un-put-down-able! Grenville's descriptions are so real you can smell, touch and see the characters and their surroundings. I lived in Sydney for 5 years but really didn't stop to think much about the first settlers and the impact on the local indiginous people. This is a great history lesson wrapped up in an excellent piece of fiction, and a must for those of you who, like me, grew up as white Australians thinking we were entitled to whatever we wanted, and have since learned better manners. by Sarah Nattey
