I really enjoyed this one. The only reason I gave it a 5 instead of a 4 was some of Victoria's development was too delayed, too drawn-out. I also felt that Marlena's changes were too quick for me. Read full review

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. Read full review

This book is great and the ending unbelievable! Thank you for including so many of our flowers and the meanings! That was the icing on the cake! Thank you!

I especially love it when a debut novel charms me into skipping a meal or two and this book did just that. Front and center and totally able to carry this character driven novel is Victoria, a product of the foster care system. The story is told from her viewpoint and realistically reflects how emotional and physical abuse damages the psyche and hinders a person’s ability to form normal relationships. Victoria’s journey is filled with beauty and anguish. As she struggles to find herself as an adult recently released from the foster care system, she discovers her passion for flowers and their meaning. This is an enchanting thread steeped in knowledge gleaned from the Victorian Age, which the author uses to bond the characters together. In summary a great book for those who like character-driven novels with strong emotional pull. Excellent book club choice.
