Publisher's Summary

Amanita reached into her jacket and prised the letter from between her iPod and her headphones. She gazed at the writing on the front for a moment. It’s eloquent loops and scrawl communicating her father’s handwriting style - something she had never known before. Then she opened it.

Amanita Walmer never knew her father, the renowned botanist Dr Virgil Walmer. But through her growing independence during her first year at university, she comes to understand the man whose daughter she will always be.

In this eloquent exploration of burgeoning independence, Amanita Walmer and the Amberleigh Flower portrays what it is like to leave home for the first time, the strains put on friendships that were once thought eternal, and the lasting marks of an unknown fatherhood.

Multiple narrative skeins weave a rich tapestry

A deep backstory and large cast of characters seem overwhelming at first, but quickly the characters become distinctive, each with their own voice, and this story, more than a generation in the telling, proceeds at a breakneck speed.

Story of growing for a young girl to adulthood

A new author and narrator for me. Given an opportunity to listen to the book. Good story by Dominic Jericho and narration by Hanna Williamson, as we watch Amanita grow into a young women as she begins college.

Good story of growing up

I enjoyed this story of growing up & learning as you grow. The mixed in story of Amanitas Father was really good, I liked the way the characters intermixed and the way it was looped with time as Amanita grew up during her time studying.
The narrator was good a nice voice to listen to

Transitioning To Adulthood

We follow Amanita in her intimate progression from maidenhood into womanhood whilst a mystery is unfolding in an expedition. A novel exploring the transition from teen to young adult with its difficulties and choices. The characters are very well explored with great dialog and interesting plots lines. The listening experience is enhanced by wonderful narration.
