Kate Grenville's The Secret River was one of the most loved novels
of 2006. Shortlisted for the Booker Prize and awarded the
Commonwealth Writer's Prize, the story of William Thornhill and his
journey from London to the other side of the world has moved and
exhilarated hundreds of thousands of readers. Searching for the
Secret River tells the story of how Grenville came to write this
wonderful book. It is in itself an amazing story, beginning with
Grenville's great-great-great grandfather. Grenville starts to
investigate her ancestor, hoping to understand his life. She
pursues him from Sydney to London and back, and slowly she begins
to realise she must write about him. Searching for the Secret River
maps this creative journey into fiction, and illuminates the
importance of family in all our lives
