John Graham-Pole

Songlines: A Novel

Final-year university students Jonah and Ellen face life-threatening illness together—and discover love. As their love deepens, they embrace intimacy and creativity, courage and honesty, joy and pride.

A compelling reminder that—along the songlines of the cancer journey—when the patient is held at the centrepoint of care, and when professional and personal caregivers work as partners with profound skill and compassion, a beautiful story unfolds. Songlines is that story.

This is emeritus professor of pediatric oncology and palliative care John Graham-Pole’s third novel in his trilogy inspired by young people with cancer. It evokes an abundance of compassion, know-how, humour, and hope.
