“Plants need roots because they can't move on their own. Their roots serve them well, stopping them from getting blown all over the place by the wind. But we humans can move around at will, and our roots hold us in place unnecessarily. Usually in a place we don't want to be. Then, when we try to move, we rip our roots, and it hurts, so we end up staying right where we are.”
Margot Berwin, Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire

“What a strange place, I thought. If I look up everything is so clear and beautiful, and if I look down, everything is so dangerous and ugly. I wished I could keep my head in the sky, but the scorpions brought me back to reality. Or was the sky the reality?”
Margot Berwin, Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire

“I liked the sound of that. A true plant person. It sounded so much more alive, and warmer than a true advertising person.”
Margot Berwin, Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire

Alison Hi Margot!
I read Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire a few weeks ago and LOVED it! I recently started reading for pleasure and read several novels this summer. However, Hothouse Flower was my favorite book I've read so far...what a perfect mix of magical realism, intrigue, desire (of course), romance, adventure, and suspense! I can't wait for your 2nd book to come out. :)
