The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart is Holly Ringland s debut novel It s been marketed ite heavily in Australia there was a lot of excitement about it so I had to read it to see if the hype was deservedIt s a beautifully crafted book with not only a gorgeous cover but also each chapter has the drawing of an Australian native flower and a bit of Information About It It Was Very Well Done So Kudos about it It was very well done so kudos the book designersThis was a coming of age story Alice Hart s father is a violent volatile man When Alice was nine years old something horrific occurs which will see Alice sent to live on a wildflower farm with her paternal grandmother she didn t know existed I loved the description of Thornton and the way it was run exclusively by women for whom Thornton was a sanctuary and a refuge I was looking forward to getting to know of the women on the farm But midway through the novel takes a different turn and sort of loses its way pretty much like Alice A well written credible coming of age story with elements of loses its way pretty much like Alice A well written credible coming of age story with elements of abuse its conseuences and surviving it turns into a melodramatic mess I can t stand it when characterspeople create nnecessary dramas by not talking to each other and in this case it was completely over the top inexplicable and incredulous I realise it was necessary to create conflict but I didn t buy it and I found it frustratingThere were also things that an editor should have picked It s a contemporary novel there s Google still there is letter writing happening and going to the post office to mail a letter or get the mail Those old tropes I wrote you so many letters over the years here s a novel idea insert sarcasm if you really want to find someone if you know the address drivefly there or it s not my story to tell Honestly the second part of the novel is a rushed jumble which I found even irritating since I was so taken with the first two hundred pagesI shouldn t be so harsh as this is a debut novel Holly Ringland s potential is apparent so I m interested to read her second novel This will go towards my Aussie Authors Challenge on wwwbookloverbookreviewscom This book not only has the most gorgeous cove.
