Set in Toronto, Vancouver and the Canadian Arctic, See What Flowers is a riveting novel about a seemingly perfect relationship between Emma, an emergency room physician in Toronto, and Adam, her passionate athletic boyfriend who co-manages a gym and coaches an elite level rugby team. Emma’s intense happiness following her surprise 30th birthday party leads her to wonder “Is there such a thing as being too happy?”, a thought that foreshadows a sudden unraveling of Emma’s life as she knows it.
Written from the alternating perspectives of Emma and Adam, the novel is a page turner, reminiscent of Gone Girl but with more likeable and complex characters. Emma has to deal the devastating effects of undiagnosed mental illness in her personal life, an issue that follows her to the Arctic community to which she escapes. Adam’s behaviour ranges from bizarre to funny to sad.
With its many references to characters in Netflix and popular TV series and its fast-paced action, See What Flowers will appeal to Millennials and Generation Z readers, although as a Baby Boomer, I also liked it and understood most of the references. Canadians especially will love the beautiful descriptions of the majestic north and rugged BC interior. Amazing debut novel!
It's well worth a read if you can get your hands on this novel!
This book is so beautifully written with many statements that left me thinking and reflecting. After finishing, I want to read it again- the story itself and the way it is written is captivating!
And I live with mental illness.
