Favel Parrett

There Was Still Love
Published by Hachette Australia, 24 September 2019

The profoundly moving new novel from the critically acclaimed and Miles Franklin shortlisted author of Past the Shadows and When the Night Comes. A tender and masterfully told story of memory, family and love.

Favel Parrett‘s deep emotional insight and stellar literary talent shine through in this love letter to the strong women who bind families together, despite dislocation and distance. It is a tender and beautifully told story of memory, family and love. Because there is still love. No matter what.
