Fellow novelist ANNE BERRY on KATE GRENVILLE

Quite honestly words fail me when it comes to Kate Grenville’s Secret River. It stands alone. It is exemplary. We are whisked away from England in the company of convicted criminal William Thornhill and his wife, Sal, to a convict colony in Sydney, Australia. It is there that he settles with his family, determined to work the land and make a good life for himself. But he soon comes into conflict with the native Aborigines. It is a treasure this story, told in my opinion by one of the finest writers I have ever read.

If you like Kate Grenville you might also like to read books by Anne Michaels, Helen Dunmore and Barbara Kingsolver.
