Description

THE SECRET RIVER by Kate Grenville (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

After a childhood of poverty and crime in the London slums, William Thornhill is sentenced in 1806 to be transported to New South Wales for the rest of his life. But, as uninhabited as the island appears, Australia is full of native people who claim the land as their own.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie® Award-winning narrator, Simon Vance. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“The moment [Vance] steps into dialogue, the characters become alive….[his performance] reaches refreshingly beyond the words on the printed page.”—AudioFile

After a childhood of poverty and petty crime in the slums of London, William Thornhill is sentenced in 1806 to be transported to New South Wales for the term of his natural life. With his wife, Sal, and children in tow, he arrives in a harsh land that feels at first like a death sentence. But among the convicts there is a whisper that freedom can be bought, an opportunity to start afresh. Away from the infant township of Sydney, up the Hawkesbury River, are white men who have tried to do just that. But, as uninhabited as the island appears, Australia is full of native people who also claim the land as their own.

A best-seller in Australia, The Secret River is the dramatic story of Grenville’s ancestors, who wrested a new life from the alien terrain of Australia and its native people.
