Sadly I was wrong. As soon as I started it I knew I was in trouble. The thing I found most irritating was the dialogue which doesn't ring true; it is extremely forced and littered with "ye olde fashioned words" thesaurus finds. If you like books by authors (and popular ones at that so good on them!) like Danielle Steele you'll probably enjoy this - it has a beginning, middle and end, moves at pace and no thinking on the reader's part is required. I read it on a long flight in one sitting.
On the other hand, if you love books like Love is Blind by William Boyd (best book I read this year) you'll want to run a mile from The Botanist's Daughter.
We go back and forwards between Cornwall in 1880s and Sydney in 2017, with both characters young women who have suffered a recent loss.
Lizzie is charged with looking for a plant with wonderous and very dangerous qualities called the devils trumpet. I enjoyed the plot straight away, and couldn’t wait to continue reading, though I did find the middle of the book quite boring and a bit of a trudge to get through, felt like they were on that boat forever!
The blossoming relationship between Tomas and Lizzie is sweet and beguiling, the parallels between the two main characters was a nice touch though became a little predictable.
The twist at the end shocked me as I did not see it coming at all, I felt the mystery was intriguing, interesting and had a sweet ending!
