The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart is a hotly anticipated debut with an absolutely gorgeous cover that catches the eye and the imagination.
This is a book that has gained quite a lot of great press and I have heard some really positive reviews. It’s one that I eagerly anticipate getting to.
The childhood home of Alice Hart is isolated and idyllic, surrounded by her mother’s flowers and set between the sea and the sugar cane fields. Tragedy strikes and she is taken in by her flower farmer grandmother, who teaches her the language of Australian native flowers.
Alice settles under the watchful eyes of her grandmother June and the women who run the flower farm but is frustrated by her sketchy knowledge of her family history.
The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart is a story that spans two decades and a range of different settings as Alice’s journey unfolds, teaching her the power of her own story.
I’m a little behind and to keep from holding our dedicated reviewers up I thought I would get little promo pieces up for the April books so that they can come tell you what they thought of the books, I will write my reviews later.
Thanks to Harper Collins 10 of our Beauty and Lace Members are already reading The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart and you can read what they thought in the comments below. Please be aware there may be spoilers.
My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
