AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jean Harley – wife, mother, lover, dancer – is a shining light in the lives of those who know and love her. But when tragedy strikes, what becomes of the people she leaves behind? Her devoted husband, Stan, is now a single father to their young son, Orion. Her best friends, Neddy and Viv, find their relationship unravelling at the seams. And Charley, the ex-con who caused it all, struggles to reconcile his past crimes with his present mistakes. Life without Jean will take some getting used to, but her indelible imprint remains.

'Jean Harley Was Here is a touching and original exploration of love, relationships, and the ways in which we need each other.'

Works about this Work

'Jean Harley Was Here' by Heather Taylor Johnson Anna Spargo-Ryan , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: Australian Book Review , May no. 391 2017;
'There is much to like about a well-executed set of short stories, and this is true of Jean Harley Was Here. While the book presents itself as a novel, it has more in common with Elizabeth Strout’s multi-narrator linked collection Olive Kitteridge (2008). This structural choice gives Heather Taylor Johnson enormous opportunity to explore the many aspects of grief.' (Introduction)
