Katherine Mansfield adored the natural world - flowers, trees and seasons.
"I had so many flowers when I was little, I got to know them so well that they are simply the breath of life to me. It's no ordinary love; it's a passion."
This passion shines through her stories, poems and letters and Mansfield created hundreds of vivid and enduring images. Heart of Flame reveals the exuberance and originality of Katherine Mansfield's words, and Jenni Shoesmith's lively and lifelike illustrations make it easy to identify the plants she loved so much.
