First novel by this author.
Christine Hinwood was born in England and grew up mostly in Australia, but also in England and America. She's always written. When she was very small, she used to sit and make up stories in her head while cuddling her security blanket; she called it 'having a thought', then, and told people she'd have to talk to them after she'd finished it. Christine studied Professional Writing and Editing at RMIT in Melbourne. Bloodflower is her first novel.
Her exploration of the strength of the human spirit and her portrayal of a society undergoing great change make this a book better suited to mature readers who can grasp the beautiful language and get to grips with the many characters. School Librarian
