Holly Ringland – author event


The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart

Join us at Kincumber Library for an evening with debut Australian author Holly Ringland as she shares her writing journey.


The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart tells the story of a young girl, the daughter of an abusive father, who has to learn the hard way that she can break the patterns of the past, live on her own terms and find her own strength - with a little help from the language of native flowers. Ringland’s novel explores the power of stories, the cyclical nature of violence and the long shadow cast by trauma.

Set between the sugar cane fields of northern Queensland, a native Australian wildflower farm and a celestial crater in the central Australian desert, Ringland’s novel is a love letter to the Australian landscape and reminds us of the innate connection between self-identity and home.

The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart is also a celebration of the power of female relationships.
