A wonderfully written story about a woman, Victoria, trying to pick up the pieces of her life after having been shuffled around foster homes in San Francisco. The use/meaning of flowers as a mechanicism for normalcy is a key element towards understanding Victoria and the decisions that she makes throughout her life. There are also a slew of issues subtly delt with: homelessness, abuse, trust, loyalty, motherhood, friendship, etc. A great novel full of layers.
