Sarah Thornhill is the youngest child of William Thornhill, convict-turned-landowner on the Hawkesbury River. Her stepmother calls her willful, but handsome Jack Langland loves her and she loves him. Me and Jack, she thinks, how could it go wrong? But there's an ugly secret in Sarah's family. That secret takes her into the darkness of the past, and across the ocean to the wild coasts of New Zealand. Among the strangers of that other place, she can begin to understand. Kate Grenville takes us back to the early Australia of The Secret River and the Thornhill family. This is Sarah's story. It's a story of love lost and found, tangled histories and how it matters to keep stories alive.

About Kate Grenville

Kate Grenville, one of Australia's most celebrated authors, has had her award-winning novels published worldwide. The Secret River won the Commonwealth Writers' Prize and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and Lilian's Story; The Idea of Perfection won the Orange Prize for Fiction. Kate Grenville's convict ancestor inspired The Secret River, and Sarah Thornhill also has its beginnings in her family history. Along with The Lieutenant, these three novels form a loose trilogy about colonial Australia.
