The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah is a spectacular piece of historical fiction.
The heroine is Clare Aisling Franciosi , an Irish convict with a diffident manner and a beautiful singing voice. She lives on a small farmstead with her husband, Aidan Michael Sheasby , and their baby daughter. Hawkins sees himself as a man of taste and refinement.
He also rapes her, an assault repeated and compounded with acts of savagery that are horrifying but not, in his environment, entirely surprising. Clare survives the attack and decides, against all reason and advice, to seek payback.
Without much hope of finding justice through official channels — a magistrate vaguely promises to file a report of some kind — she takes matters into her own hands, setting out for Launceston with a rifle and a horse. Hawkins, worried that his promotion is in jeopardy, is on his way there with several of his men. She also hires an Aboriginal guide named Billy Baykali Ganambarr , since the trackless forests are too dense and dangerous for a white woman to navigate on her own.
She keeps him in the dark about the true purpose of their journey.
Not that anyone would take them for a posse in pursuit of an officer and his retinue. The whites are engaged in a genocidal campaign that justifies itself as a counter-insurgency. Hawkins is a monster, but hardly an anomaly, and his increasingly sadistic behavior reveals the true face of British authority.
Billy and Clare slowly evolve toward an understanding of their common status as outsiders.
