7/19/2012: Second Read. Enjoyed it as much as the first time and would recommend to people who love women's lit or stories of adoption/fostering


10/20/2011: Victoria has had a hard life. She was abandoned as a child and moved around from foster home to foster home before becoming a ward of the state. Upon her release she uses her talents and knowledge about flowers to land her first job in San Francisco. Victoria has a hard time communicating with people and accepting love, but through her work and connection with caring people she goes through a great transformation.

This book is in my unofficial top 10 favorite books of the year. I read it in one evening and it was both charming and suspenseful. It's a teensy bit contrived like a Lifetime movie, but in the best possible way. This would be great for book clubs.
