Dahlia's Bouquet is a fantastic read. It all begins with a devastating event which alters the fortunes of each generation that follows. From Daisy to Dahlia,the characters are besieged with heartache and tragedy. Remarkably, they survive, and even triumph.

This is one of those books that pulls you in quickly, and holds fast until you've read the last page. You start reading it because you should, and finish reading it because you cannot put it down. It is filled with drama and packed with emotion. There are characters to love, and characters to hate. You root for them, cry with them, and perch at the edge of your seat waiting for some to get what's coming to them.

Of all of the stories, the tale of Stuart and Lily touched me most deeply. Even now, thinking about them makes me want to cry.

Dahlia's bouquet is excellently crafted. The plot is tight, the pacing is just right, and the characters are well developed. The continuity between the generations is smooth, without that jarring transition that sometimes occurs in generational sagas. Overall, it is an excellent novel, truly deserving of five stars. I highly recommend it.
