The Submerged Cathedral
'Set me as a seal on your heart, for love is stronger than death.'
Spanning many years, travelling across Australia's vast continent and through some of Europe's great cities, The Submerged Cathedral is a beguiling, heartbreaking story of paradise and the fall; of faith, sacrifice and atonement; and of sisterly love and rivalry. Most of all, however, it is about an enduring and sacred love - a love stronger than death - and the journeys undertaken in its name.
The Submerged Cathedral was shortlisted for the 2005 Miles Franklin Award and the 2005 Commonwealth Writers' Prize for South-East Asia/South Pacific.
