The 150th FlaxFlower book review has been posted on the flaxroots website.

In it North Shore author Vicky Adin’s book The Girl From County Clare, is hailed by its reviewer as a delightful novel that was hard to put down, well-researched, and reflecting considerable understanding of the attitudes of the era — the late 1800s.

Note: the review will be posted on Thursday Sept. 28th

FlaxFlower is an online site dedicated to reviewing New Zealand books.

Dr Bronwyn Elsmore, owner of the site, began FlaxFlower in 2014 as a free service to fellow Kiwi authors, who often find it difficult to have their books reviewed.

She finds a reviewer appropriate to each book, insisting that reviewer and author do not know each other – essential for an unbiased opinion. Books published by traditional publishing houses as well as smaller and independent publishers are accepted.
