NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, itís been more useful in communicating mistrust and solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, she is unable to get close to anybody, and her only connection to the world is through flowers and their meanings. Now eighteen and emancipated from the system with nowhere to go, Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But an unexpected encounter with a mysterious stranger has her questioning whatís been missing in her life. And when sheís forced to confront a painful secret from her past, she must decide whether itís worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness.

  • The Language of Flowers

    We read this in bookclub and it certainly generated a lot of good discussion. It did raise our level of awareness about foster care and the afterlife of being raised in foster care. It ended hopefully and I like that.
