PAST THE SHALLOWS is the award-winning, bestselling debut novel from Favel Parrett about the bonds of brotherhood and the fragility of youth - named on Oprah's Book Club 2.0 as a 'Can't Miss New Paperback'

Everyone loves Harry. Everyone except his father.

Three brothers, Joe, Miles and Harry, are growing up on the remote south coast of Tasmania. The brother' lives are shaped by their father's moods - like the ocean he fishes, his 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 treasure he discovers, in the 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.
