Sarah Thornhill by Kate Grenville

Sarah lives in the Australian outback at the turn of the century and is struggling her way through family secrets and social mores of her time and culture. She is a feisty, courageous young women who is unafraid to ask the difficult questions to which there are no easy answers. What I loved about the book is that the characters and decisions they make are so believable and in the end, no pat answers are offered – a great read!
