Find copies of The Secret River

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.
