The Fair Botanists
The Fair Botanists by Sara Sheridan (Hodder & Stoughton, 2022)


The Fair Botanists by Sara Sheridan (ISBN: 9781529336221, paperback). It’s 1822 and Edinburgh’s botanists are abuzz with excitement at the impeding and rare flowering of the Agave Americana plant in the city’s new Botanic Garden. Elizabeth, an artist, recently settled in the city, sets out to capture the moment, and in the Garden meets the vivacious perfumier, Belle, who has her own, undeclared, reason for being there. A captivating tonic of a story.
