A River Town

Thomas Keneally

Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Historical fiction

Reissued to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Keneally's first novel.

In turn-of-the-century Australia, Tim Shea supports his young family by running a general store in a remote riverside town, where he finds the same hypocrisy and snobbery which made him emigrate from Ireland, and suffers a series of misfortunes which take him to the brink of disaster. Capturing the spirit of the times, this is the mesmerising tale of a flawed hero whose stubborn integrity is nearly his undoing.
