Past the Shallows is a beautifully written, gripping and emotinally charged book. I read it within 2 days but a few times had to put it down so I could breathe because of its intensity.

The language is deceptively simple. Each sentence is pitched to hold just the right amount of tension. There is a stillness about this book that draws you in and binds you to it. Each character feels real, as though they're people you've seen or have known. When any of them are lost, you feel the hurt.

This is the type of book that makes you glad that books exist. Highly recommended and look forward to more work by this author.
