Read from May 05 to June 18, 2012

This is an incredibly well-written story that totally surprised me because of the title, as I've never had much little personal interest in botany, although I do love flowers. It's the story of a foster child with little reason to hope for much, & yet, she finds her way. The mother-daughter bond, the issue of trust, & the fascinating use of the language of flowers makes for a compelling read I recommend wholeheartedly to anyone who is interested in how one learns to risk being vulnerable enough to trust & to love, after having been given little reason to do so, & many to resist. I don't want to say more, because of spoilers, except that I fell in love with the main characters, & applaud Vanessa Diffenbaugh for an eloquent, superb first novel.
