I am so excited to share the novel of The Fever Tree with you. Thank you to Putnam Books for sending me a copy.
Synopsis:
Frances lost her mother early on in her childhood. While I am sure he loved his daughter he couldn’t be bothered with raising her. As time moves on Frances meets Edwin who her father has decided to help. Little does she know that there will be a request made of Edwin to care for Frances. When her father dies and she is left with a marriage proposal or go be a nursemaid for her aunt; after having lost everything. Frances accepts the proposal and moves to the wilds of South Africa. She meets some interesting characters along the way. What will she learn? And how will it affect her relationship with Edwin?
My Thoughts:
I have to say that I loved this novel! I didn’t think I would initially. The main factor is the growth and development of the characters within the novel. I felt for Frances at times but also wanted to shake her. Then there was Edwin who I wanted to sit down and explain why Frances is the way that she is. The story plays out against a setting of both England and South Africa. The author does a great job of contrasting the coldness of England with the warmth of South Africa.
The Plot of this novel focuses on what happens when a young overprotected and spoiled girl suddenly loses everything? Who would you root for in the novel Frances, Edwin, or William?
