I know compelling is a cliche but it is an apt description of this book. Made even more so by Caroline's extraordinary story telling performance which kept me enthralled for hours. Being set in Tasmania made it even more special to me and her descriptions of our landscape and colonial houses was masterful.I would certainly recommend both the book and narrator and rate them both very highly. The only minor discrepancy in the research for the story was when the doctor prescribed penicillin for Mikale in 1934 several years before it was developed into a usable drug. While discovered in 1928 it was not until WWII that it was actually used. Other than that I loved every minute of Wildflower Hill. . Dr Ian Broinowski Hobart Tasmania
