The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart

by Holly Ringland

Book Description:

An enchanting and captivating novel, about how our untold stories haunt us and the stories we tell ourselves in order to survive.

After her family suffers a tragedy, nine-year-old Alice Hart is forced to leave her idyllic seaside home. She is taken in by her grandmother, June, a flower farmer who raises Alice on the language of Australian native flowers, a way to say the things that are too hard to speak.

Under the watchful eye of June and the women who run the farm, Alice settles, but grows up increasingly frustrated by how little she knows of her family's story. In her early twenties, Alice's life is thrown into upheaval again when she suffers devastating betrayal and loss. Desperate to outrun grief, Alice flees to the dramatically beautiful central Australian desert. In this otherworldly landscape Alice thinks she has found solace, until she meets a charismatic and ultimately dangerous man.

Spanning two decades, set between sugar cane fields by the sea, a native Australian flower farm, and a celestial crater in the central desert, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart follows Alice's unforgettable journey, as she learns that the most powerful story she will ever possess is her own.

Why Our Staff Love The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart:

If you're thinking of picking up this book for the gorgeous cover alone then you are in for a treat, for the story that lies beneath it is wonderful, complex and utterly unforgettable. Alice Hart is a young woman adrift after having suffered a terrible tragedy, who finds solace in the hardy Australian wildflowers that she grows up amongst with her grandmother June. As she moves from place to place, carrying the weight of her unspoken grief and the knowledge of native flora, Alice learns what it means to survive through moments of unimaginable darkness.

It’s hard to believe that Holly Ringland is a debut author, as she writes with astonishing maturity on things that many established writers would balk at, finding profound beauty in the bleakest moments of human experience.

The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart is a story that is beautiful and brutal in equal measure, and it will captivate you from the very first page to the last..
