I really liked this book. It's one of my favorites as far as what I've read in the last year or so. There were times I got so frustrated with Victoria, with how harshly she treated people, especially Elizabeth. I understand how natural it came to her, out of fear of being abandoned and feeling like she was unworthy of anything good...but still, at a certain point enough is enough. I would have liked to see her soften up a bit more while she was building these relationships with people. Instead she used her talent with picking flowers for people and seemed almost mechanical about it. You'd think if you're helping people out in their most intimate of situations you can relate to them on a more human level and not act so feral, despite a tumultuous upbringing. It kind of irritated me, I kept waiting for that aha moment... Like for her little gray rain cloud to disappear for a bit. Even so, it was a more than satisfying read.
