The Secret River

By Rawlings, Marjorie Kinnan

Prices starting at $1.00

The Secret River, written by Kate Grenville in 2005, is a historical fiction about an early 19th century Englishman transported to Australia for theft. The story begins with an insightful flashback to England, and goes on to explore issues surrounding the question of what might have happened when Europeans colonised land already inhabited by Aboriginal people. According to a review in The Telegraph, The Secret River has more action than Grenville's previous novel,The Idea of Perfection.

She was an American author who usually wrote novels with rural themes and settings, however this book 'The Secret River' was an exception. It was the only story that Marjorie Rawlings wrote directly for children, and in the preface of the book, her literary executor provides the background in having the story published. 'The Secret River' posthumously received a Newbury Honor in 1956, an award given to authors for a distinguished contribution to American literature for children.).
