Sarah Thornhill is the youngest child of William Thornhill, convict-turned-landowner on the Hawkesbury River. She grows up in the fine house her father is so proud of, a strong-willed young woman who's certain where her future lies. She's known Jack Langland since she was a child, and always loved him. But the past is waiting in ambush with its dark legacy. There's a secret in Sarah's family, a piece of the past kept hidden from the world and from her. A secret Jack can't live with. A secret that changes everything, for both of them. 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 tangled secrets, a story of loss and unlooked-for happiness, and a story about the silent spaces of the past.

Reviews

"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's extraordinary trilogy is a major achievement in Australian literature."--"Australian Book Review" "A moving piece of fiction . . . Powerfully realized . . . Sarah Thornhill is the book of a writer of the first rank. . . . A haunting performance."--"The Age "(Australia) "A beguiling love story . . . The voice of illiterate Sarah is Grenville's great triumph. . . . An imaginatively convincing recreation of history and a celebration of country tenderly and beautifully observed, but above all it is a powerful plea for due acknowledgement and remembrance of the veils of the past."--"Adelaide Advertiser-
