Sarah is the youngest child of William Thornhill, the pioneer at the center of The Secret River. Unknown to her, her father-an uneducated ex-convict from London-has built his fortune on the blood of Aboriginal people. With a fine stone house and plenty of money, Thornhill has re-invented himself. As he tells his daughter, he never looks back,” and Sarah grows up learning not to ask about the past. Instead her eyes are on handsome Jack Langland, whom she’s loved since she was a child. Their romance seems destined, but the ugly secret in Sarah’s family is poised to ambush them both.
As she did with The Secret River, Grenville once again digs into her own family history to tell a story about the past that still resonates today. Driven by the captivating voice of the illiterate Sarah-at once headstrong, sympathetic, curious, and refreshingly honest-this is an unforgettable portrait of a passionate woman caught up in a historical moment of astonishing turmoil.
