Based on the real life events of Australian botanist, Georgiana Molloy. At 23, Georgiana has married retired military man, Captain Jack Molloy and undertakes the voyage to Australia. Threaded throughout is the story of young Will Summerfield and his sister Charlotte. Ages 12+.
Libby Hathorn's historical novel is a wonderfully accessible introduction to the life of Georgiana Molloy, the Woman of Flowers, and extraordinary and unique figure in early Australia's history. A beaut book! - Dr Kevin Thiele, Curator, Western Australian HerbariumThis engaging novel about a modest but remarkable woman really gets to the heart of early colonial life in Australia. It's both a great story and an enthralling piece of social history.
