Being Frank: A Man from Snowy River

By John Francis Lavis - ISBN: 9781922993861

RRP: $26.95

When a tragic accident took the life of his son, Frank spent the years that followed documenting everything.

Struggling with dyslexia and low self-esteem, Frank proceeded to fill diary after diary with all the inner turmoil and heartbreak of a man with hidden depth.

From his love/hate relationship with his god, to his attempts to understand what his own life was all about, Frank reveals family secrets and doesn’t pull any punches as he ponders on the time passed and the future ahead.

Brutally honest, Being Frank is an amazing array of stories and characters that will jump out at you unexpectedly. A story to make you laugh and cry but, above all, that will leave you with hope…

“A raw and thoughtful work by an unassuming author with real talent for his prose, excellent…” Karen, Readalot Magazine reviewer
