About the Book
At Christmas, 1900, university student Berylda Jones is heading home from Sydney to Bathurst, and with customary reluctance, for 'home' is where she and her sister Greta live in quiet terror, under the control of their sadistic Uncle Alec. Berylda has a plan this time, though, to free herself and Greta from Alec for good - if she can only find the courage to execute it. On New Year's Eve, that plan begins to take fire. Just as Alec tightens his grip on the sisters, a stranger arrives at their gate - Ben Wilberry, a botanist in search of a particular native wildflower, with his friend, the artist Cosmo Thompson. So begins a journey that will take them all deep into the rugged wilderness of the old gold rush country of Hill End in search of a means to cure an unspeakable evil. Set at the dawn of Federation and the coming of the Women's Vote, Paper Daisies is an Australian gothic tale of murder and misogyny. A story of one woman's determination to see justice done, and the man who clears her path along the way.
About the Author
Kim Kelly is the author of six novels exploring Australia and its history. Her stories shine a bright light on some forgotten corners of the past and tell the tales of ordinary people living through extraordinary times. An editor and literary consultant by trade, stories fill her everyday - most nights, too - and it's love that fuels her intellectual engine. In fact, Kim takes love so seriously she once donated a kidney to her husband to prove it, and also to save his life. Originally from Sydney, today Kim lives on a small rural property in central New South Wales just outside the tiny gold-rush village of Millthorpe, where her grown sons regularly come home to graze. 'colourful, evocative and energetic' - Sydney Morning Herald 'impressive research' - Daily Telegraph 'Why can't more people write like this?' - Canberra Times
