One that will send her halfway across the world to Kew Gardens and then onto Cornwall in search of the truth. A lady adventurer...
1886: Elizabeth Trebithick is determined to fulfil her father's dying wish and continue his life's work as an adventurer and plant-hunter. So when she embarks on a perilous journey to discover a rare and miraculous flower, she will discover that the ultimate betrayal can be found even across the seas...
