I bought this book years ago, the beautiful cover drew me in, but for some reason I didn't read it. Last year, I found a companion book that I got because I adore flowers and their victorian meanings ... Read full review

Loved, even though the diction was stuffy at times and I felt physically sick to my stomach during the entire breastfeeding episode. This is a unique, painful, beautiful book. 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.
