A story of love, duty, hardship and intolerance told by a
strong woman in 1850s colonial Australia.
A part of me will always live at Salt Creek though it is
on the far side of the world…
Hester Finch’s comfortable life in Chichester, England,
could not be further from the hardship her family endured
on leaving Adelaide for Salt Creek in 1855. Yet she finds
her thoughts drawn to that beautiful, inhospitable
outcrop of South Australia and the connections she and
her siblings forged there: encounters with passing
travellers and the local indigenous people – in
particular a boy, Tully, whom Hester’s father seeks to
educate almost as his own son – would change the fates of
the Finches, and of the area’s first people, for ever.
