Review

An enchanting read . . . The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart has all the ingredients for a spellbinding tale; and absorbs its reader until the very final page * Literary Edit * The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart is a touching coming of age story featuring three very unique and stunning Australian locations that will enchant readers from all over the world. Spanning twenty years of Alice's life, the story will appeal to readers who enjoy saga novels in atmospheric, exotic places - this is armchair travel of the best kind * But Books are Better * One of my favourite books of the year. It's beautifully written, a tragic and yet somehow still uplifting story that keeps you turning the pages in the hope that Alice will find her place, her balance * 1girl2manybooks * The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart is a rare beauty. It is one of those novels that quietly sneaks up on you and unleashes its power. I have a feeling that The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart is destined to remain by my side for some time yet. It is a fierce and assured piece of writing that makes a solid commentary on family dynamics, domestic drama and self-discovery. It is a mighty feat for a new writer, but Holly Ringland demonstrates she is a force to be reckoned with * MrsB Book Reviews * Captivating and enchanting, this is a tale of redemption, healing, and unraveling the stories of the past, while carving out a future for yourself * Nyssa Reads * This is a brave story that strikes a chord in so many ways. It speaks of pain, but also redemption, survival and renewal * Gold Coast Bulletin * A novel of resurrections and revivals * Spectrum magazine * Lush, powerful . . . This is an engrossing novel imbued with passion and reverence for the Australian natural world, with a cast of characters that inspire affection in the reader even as they make mistakes . . . [A] compelling journey of female survival * Bookseller + Publisher * Holly Ringland writes with a great deal of heart . . . [Her] writing is highly evocative, assured and gripping . . . There is something transformative in the story of Alice Hart, something which lingers with you after the closing of the last page * Booktopia * This novel shines with courage, with heart, and with love. Infused with a tender ferocity, and the beauty and warmth of native flowers, it invokes great stories of loss, kindness and home -- Ashley Hay Beautifully written and definitely a book to sink into * Better Read Than Dead * The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart is a book that glows - in the fire and heart of it; in the wonder and hope of it. Holly Ringland is a gifted, natural story-teller and her novel-about finding magic in the dark; about the power of freedom and the freedom of story-is truly a light-giving, tender thing. A vivid, compelling, utterly moving debut -- Brooke Davis An astonishingly assured debut, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart is a story of love, loss, betrayal and the redemptive power of storytelling . . . Both heartbreaking and life-affirming -- Kate Forsyth The best fairy tales traverse the darkest corners of the human heart, and this beautiful novel is no exception. Truth and illusion, devastation and triumph, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart will spit you out whole -- Myfanwy Jones Equal parts enchanting and heart-wrenching * The Plant Hunter * There is something transformative in the story of Alice Hart, something which lingers with you after the closing of the last page * 9Honey * Brave and beautiful . . . Alice Hart has the strength and magic of an Australian wildflower in bloom -- Favel Parrett Charming * The Australian * Holly Ringland's debut is achingly beautiful, moving and masterful. The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart is a book to fall in love with, to cherish and to remember for a long time after you've closed the last page. One of the most exquisite books out this year from a genuinely exciting new talent, Holly Ringland is one of those writers who takes your breath away. Timeless, enchanting, and powerful -- Kate Leaver At its heart, this book is about finding a way to care for yourself, in a world that sometimes likes to step on its flowers * Courier Mail * There's an aching heart beating through Holly Ringland's narrative that although at times seems almost broken, is stitched back together with shards of optimism that offer constant hope. These are characters we love, care about and want to nurture . . . A vivid and brave tale of love, loss and inner power * Australian Women's Weekly * Rich, vibrant and alive with the messy, sometimes violent, song of human connection. Holly Ringland is a writer to watch out for -- Jenn Ashworth A beautifully written, hopeful and enthralling tale . . . Enchanting * Herald Sun * A magical coming-of-age novel * Good Housekeeping *

Review

‘Not everyone who visits the central Australian desert understands the landscape of it. Holly Ringland does and shares her heart instincts in this epic telling. Each page arrives to us like the first flight of the butterfly from its cocoon. The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart is a literary gift.’ (Ali Cobby Eckermann, Indigenous Australian Poet, author of Ruby Moonlight)

‘A complex, literary debut that examines the dangerously fine line between care and control, sanctuary and prison. Holly’s writing is rich, vibrant and alive with the messy, sometimes violent song of human connection. She is a writer to watch out for.’ (Jenn Ashworth, author of Fell)

‘The best fairy tales traverse the darkest corners of the human heart, and this beautiful novel is no exception. Truth and illusion, devastation and triumph, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart will spit you out whole.’ (Myfanwy Jones, 2016 Miles Franklin Literary Award finalist)
