What if memories never die? An evocative Australian YA novel about family, place, and how history has a way of weaving itself into our present.

What if memories never die? When fifteen-year-old Will is sent away to stay with his grandparents in rural New South Wales, he finds the isolated farm strangely familiar — except the memories he’s channelling are not his own. So whose are they? And what does his grandfather know? As two stories unfold, nearly two hundred years apart, two boys exiled to what feels like the end of the earth struggle to find their identities and voices in the face of abandonment and tragedy. A page-turning YA novel that explores the darker moments of our convict past and how they resonate today.

  • Featuring two intersecting stories — one set in 1829 to 30 (told in the first person) and the other contemporary (told in the third person).
  • Cameron Nunn meticulously researched Echo in the Memory using sources including court records and transcripts of interviews with young convicts.
