Publisher's Summary

It's December 1900, and Berylda Jones is heading home to Bathurst for Christmas. Tragically, 'home' is where she and her beloved sister, Greta, live in terror, under the control of their sadistic Uncle Alec.

But Berylda has a plan, borne out of desperation, to free herself and Greta from Alec for good - if she can only find the courage to execute it.

Then, on New Year's Eve, 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.

Ben is oblivious to what depravity lies beyond this threshold and what follows is a journey that will take him and Berylda, and Greta and Cosmo, out to the old gold rush town of Hill End in search of a means to cure evil and a solution to what seems an impossible situation.

Against the tumultuous backdrop of Australian Federation and the coming of the Women's Vote, Paper Daisies is a story of what it means to find moral courage, of a crime that must be committed to see justice done and a sweet love that flourishes against the odds.

Rich and beautifully written

Dark story line, however, the descriptive style of it captured me throughly. The middle of the story drug a bit.

Too much emotion played out

Paper daisies started well, however I thought the story stalled somewhat when the main character bounced her emotions backwards and forwards and often these were over played. I was going to give up when the story took up again and had more flow and excitement to the story. Overall it is not as good as Kim ' s other book The blue mile which I really enjoyed, but still worth a read.
