Abstract:

When Pearl returns to Kangaroo Island in the wake of her grandmother Nell's death, she begins to unearth a connection to the island's Aboriginal history. Told across multiple time lines, Heart of the Grass Tree weaves between the current day, in which Pearl, her sister and their mother are preparing for Nell's funeral. Then back in time to Nell's hidden teenage affair with a local Aboriginal boy, Sol, and then back further to the story of his ancestors, the son of a sealer who falls in love with the daughter of an Aboriginal woman stolen to be his father's 'wife'.A gorgeously told Australian family saga about trauma and love passed through multiple generations of women.
