    DescriptionShortlisted for the 2012 Miles Franklin Award, PAST THE SHALLOWS is a powerful and hauntingly beautiful novel from an extraordinary new Australian writer who is compared with Cormac McCarthy and Tim Winton. 'If you read only one book this year, make sure it's this' Sunday Times 'I loved Past the Shallows' Kevin Powers, author of The Yellow Birds Everyone loves Harry. Except his father. Joe, Miles and Harry are growing up on the remote south coast of Tasmania. The brothers' lives are shaped by their father's moods - like the ocean he fishes, he is wild and unpredictable. He is a bitter man, with a devastating secret. Miles does 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 mug of hot chocolate, and a secret friendship with a mysterious neighbour. But sometimes small treasures, or a brother's love are not enough.

    Jen Macklin I seriously loved this book. So beautifully descriptive especially of the ocean and the natural environment of southern Tasmania. Bleak and completely devastating story but I loved every page. Look forward to more from this writer. by Jen Macklin

    mona abed algani A sad story of family ties in the verse of tragedy, children forced to fend for themselves mature too soon in order to cope with the harsh reality.

    Simple but touching a lovely read, ended too soon. Highly recommended by mona abed algani
