The Botanist’s Daughter

In Victorian England, headstrong adventuress Elizabeth takes up her late father’s quest for a rare, miraculous plant. She faces a perilous sea voyage, unforeseen dangers and treachery that threatens her entire family.

In present-day Australia, Anna finds a mysterious box containing a sketchbook of watercolours, a photograph inscribed ‘Spring 1886’ and a bag of seeds. It sets her on a journey that forces her to face her own demons.

Kayte Nunn’s The Botanist’s Daughter is an exquisitely researched, spellbinding botanical odyssey of discovery, desire and deception.
