    DescriptionSarah and Jack have never doubted that they are made for each other. But there is someone in Sarah's family who will not tolerate the relationship. The reason lies in both the past and the present, and it will take Sarah across an ocean to a place she never imagined she would be. Kate Grenville takes us back to the Australia of The Secret River in this novel about love, tangled histories and how it matters to keep stories alive.

    Author Information
    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.
    Review quote
    "* 'I was thrilled to find myself back beside the river I'd come to know so well in The Secret River. The power with which Kate Grenville evokes places and people is so remarkable that I could remember the smell of the air there - and it was no surprise to discover that Sarah Thornhill's story is as gripping and illuminating as her father's was' - Diana Athill * 'Grenville inhabits characters with a rare completeness... She writes with a poet's sense of rhythm and imagery' - Guardian * 'Here is someone who can really write' - Peter Carey"
