Beautifully written story of love, redemption, forgiveness - giving and getting. For those who believe themselves to be unloved and unlovable and how they sometimes learn to love themselves despite everything they've been taught to believe of their unworthiness. Diffenbaugh certainly goes to extremes to make the main character as unworthy of the readers' belief in her as possible, as a child she is difficult at best. As an adult, she withdraws, but as her love of flowers grows, so does the vision of her potential to love and be loved.
