"A novel based on real events in the life of Thomas Keneally's grandfather, A River Town takes us back to the turn of the century. Like the immigrants who came to America's shores, Tim Shea has left his native Ireland and its confining social codes to seek the wide-open spaces of Australia. Struggling to make a living as a storekeeper and to support a growing family, Shea finds his stubborn integrity has made him vulnerable to the kinds of social pressures he thought he had left behind in Ireland." "A River Town tells of how a man triumphs through compassion, of the heroism of looking beyond a community's easy prejudices. Engrossing, funny, and touching, it is, in short, vintage Keneally."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
