The Secret River
In 1806 William Thornhill, an illiterate English bargeman and a man of quick temper but deep compassion, steals a load of wood and, as a part of his lenient sentence, is deported, along with his beloved wife, Sal, to the New South Wales colony in what would become Australia.
The Secret River is the tale of William and Sal’s deep love for their small, exotic corner of the new world, and William’s gradual realisation that if he wants to make a home for his family, he must forcibly take the land from the people who came before him.
