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 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.

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.
