The Language of Flowers
By Vanessa Diffenbaugh
In the Victorian Era, specific flowers had different romantic meanings: honeysuckles stood for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. Victoria Jones, an 18-year-old orphan living in the current era, struggles with homelessness after she's finally free of the foster care system. She turns to flowers to help her cope with her broken world. Her talent for selecting and arranging flowers is discovered by a local florist, so she accepts a job. But a mysterious stranger she meets causes her to confront a painful secret from her past. Readers of this New York Times Bestseller call it enchanting and compelling.
