Sarah Thornhill is the daughter of a convict-turned-landowner on the Hawkesbury River. She has loved Jack Langland since she was a child. But the past is waiting in ambush with its dark legacy: a secret that changes everything, for both of them.

Sarah Thornhill takes us back to an early Australia, with a story about love, loss and the silent spaces of the past.

Join master storyteller Kate Grenville as she discusses her new novel, a sequel to her bestselling The Secret River.

Presented with Hornsby Central Library.
