Past the Shallows Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Past the Shallows is the award-winning, best-selling debut novel from Favel Parrett about the bonds of brotherhood and the fragility of youth, narrated by David Wenham.
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 moods - 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.

This is a rare gem of a novel – a literary shark egg I am so delighted to have discovered!.
This is the first book of this author I have read and I was absolutely swept away. There are 2 things that I want in a book. Firstly not wanting to put it down and not wanting the book to end. The book met the criteria on both counts.
Sad, dark and intriguing. A book worthy of the accolades and written with great depth and insight.
the sun light went out with their mother death the light, soutbern lights ,sun, firelight, warmth all related to the mother
The father never overcame the loss the betrayal of brother and his own wife the child left behind from that union
