We will be launching a NEW online catalogue on April 6th. To accommodate this and other changes, the Library will be closed from March 30th to April 5th. During the closure, this website will not be available and members will not be able to place holds or renew items. Your saved lists and shelf information will be available in the new catalogue. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
In 1806 William Thornhill is transported from the slums of London to Australia as punishment for stealing. After serving his 8 year sentence, Thornhill sails up the Hawkesbury River to claim land for himself. But Aboriginal people already live along the river forcing Thornhill to make a difficult choice.
