Booktopia - The Secret River, Secret River Trilogy Series : Book 1 by Kate Grenville, 9781841959146. The Orange Prize-winning author Kate Grenville recalls her family's history in an astounding novel about the pioneers of New South Wales. William Thornhill, a Thames bargeman, is deported to the New South Wales colony in what would become Australia. The Secret River is the tale of Thornhill's deep love for his small corner of the new world, and his slow realization that if he wants to settle there, he must ally himself with the most despicable of the white settlers, and to keep his family safe, he must permit terrifying cruelty to come to innocent people.
Kate Grenville was born in Sydney and holds degrees from Sydney University and the University of Colorado.


Already a best seller in Australia, The Secret River is the story of Grenville's ancestors, who wrested a new life from the alien terrain of Australia and its native people. In this new world of convicts and charlatans, Thornhill tries to pull his family into a position of power and comfort. At a press conference Tuesday afternoon, Marvel Entertainment ended months of speculation by confirming that it will reboot its comic book universe during this summer’s much-hyped Secret Wars event.
When he rounds a bend in the Hawkesbury River and sees a gentle slope of land, he becomes determined to make the place his own.
But, as uninhabited as the island appears, Australia is full of native people, and they do not take kindly to Thornhill's theft of their home.


Her works of fiction have been published to acclaim in Australia and overseas and have won state and national awards and her books about the writing process are used in many writing courses in schools and universities. Much-loved novels such as Lilian's Story (1985), Dark Places (1995) and Joan Makes History (1988) have become classics, admired by critics and general readers alike. The Secret River (2005) has won many prizes, including the Commonwealth Prize for Literature and the Christina Stead Prize, and has been an international best-seller.
