Second Bridegroom Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Second Bridegroom

This novel is part of a trilogy which was not written in chronological order. It is the story of an Australian convict who escapes after killing another convict. He joins a group of wandering aborigines, but when they burn the camp of a group of white settlers he is recaptured. The story is told in a letter written to the wife of his former master. As usual Hall's words paint a beautiful picture of Australia as it was in the nineteenth century and his characterisation is masterful.
