WHERE the Wild Daf­fodils Grow is by El­iz­a­beth Rickards and her de­ceased grand­mother Han­nah Amelia Hol­brook ( Eaves) whose orig­i­nal book Par­son Joe was rewrit­ten and added to her other un­pub­lished manuscripts which came into El­iz­a­beth’s care. It’s a fic­tional story based on facts in­clud­ing the join­ing of fam­ily groups when they im­mi­grated to Tas­ma­nia and set­tled in the ham­let of Water­loo in south­ern Tas­ma­nia. It in­volves sev­eral fam­i­lies and their ex­pe­ri­ences with war, vi­o­lence, sex­ual abuse, sad­ness and ro­mance. The book is avail­able at the Tas­ma­nian Book Store in El­iz­a­beth St, lo­cal shops in Geeve­ston and can also be or­dered on­line.
