Wildflowers – my debut Young Adult novel.
Wildflowers, this heart-filled debut novel, is a story of fierce love and sacrifice.
17-year-old Isla has always known that she will die young. Suffering from the same disease that killer mother, she spends her days in the village learning the craft of healing or daydreaming in the forest. But when she comes across a hidden clearing and a mysterious, strange-looking boy, she starts to dream of a long and happy life.
But who is he? Where does he go when she leaves the forest? And how can they be together when their lives are worlds apart?
What unfolds after their meeting turns Isla’s life on its head, as she learns to love and to hope – and about the true meaning of sacrifice. At the very heart of the story is the forest and how nature heals, protects and connects all people.
