Read from October 27 to 29, 2011

This is one of the best books, maybe the best, I've read this year. This is a story of loss, redemption, coming of age, and the power of love. A young girl coming up through the foster care system struggles without love for so long, that she can't recognize it when it comes. Her journey through the system, towards adulthood is facilitated through her knowledge of the secret language of flowers. Anyone who has worked in the floral industry will love it, those who work with children in difficult circumstances will love it, those who love good writing will love it, and those who love San Francisco will love it. I think I've covered everyone, but if not, you will enjoy all the meanings of flowers from the Victorian Age. A bouquet of purple roses awaits those who read this.
