I’ve just finished Kate Grenville’s book, The Secret River. It’s a beautiful book, as are all her books, and it is incredibly challenging. As an Australian, it forced me to reconsider a lot of ideals, opinions, events etc.
As the lead character, William Thornhill so aptly said, when we ignore a person’s suffering, the evil becomes a part of us.
I’m thankful for this book and the lessons it holds within its pages. Let us not become complacent towards others sufferings, past and present.
