Past the Shallows

Past the Shallows (Paperback, Large type / large print edition)

By Parrett, Favel

A powerful and hauntingly beautiful novel from an extraordinary new Australian writer. Everyone loves Harry. Everyone except his father. Three brothers, Joe, Miles and Harry, are growing up on the remote south coast of Tasmania. The brothers' lives are shaped by their father's mo...ods - like the ocean he fishes, he is wild and unpredictable. He is a bitter man, warped by a devastating secret. Miles tries his best to watch out for Harry, the youngest, but he can't be there all the time. Often alone, Harry finds joy in the small treasures he discovers, in shark eggs and cuttlefish bones. In a kelpie pup, a big mug of Milo, and a secret friendship with a mysterious neighbour. But sometimes small treasures, or a brother's love, are not enough. Past the Shallows is a story of the bond of brotherhood and the fragility of youth.
