Product description

Review

"Grenville invites the reader to reflect on the complex relationship between truth and falsehood, history and fiction...[A] stunning literary achievement."--Kirsten Tranter, Guardian

"There is no doubt Grenville is one of our greatest writers."--Sunday Mail

Kate Grenville is a literary alchemist, turning the leaden shadow of the historical Elizabeth Macarthur into a luminescent, golden woman for our times. Intelligent, compassionate, strategic and dead sexy, Grenville's Macarthur is an unforgettable character who makes us question everything we thought we knew about our colonial past. A polished gem of a novel by a writer who is as brave as she is insightful. I simply loved it."--Clare Wright, author of You Daughters of Freedom

"Giving voice to the countless generations of women who were prevented from telling their true stories...Compelling."--Herald-Sun

"Vividly rendered, warmly sympathetic, daring in speculative breadth: a full-length portrait in oils of a woman known to most of us only in profile miniature...If Grenville's novel is inspired by provocation, it unfolds as a feeling, organic story."--The Australian

"Grenville so convincingly creates Elizabeth's voice it is easy to forget her opening warning: 'Do not believe too quickly!'...Grenville's Elizabeth stays with you."--Conversation

"'Memorable...Macarthur comes to vivid life...A gorgeously tactile sense of the Australian bush."--Mercury

Book Description

The first new novel in almost ten years from award-winning, bestselling author Kate Grenville.
