really liked it

Beutiful book. Victoria grew up in the foster care system as unadoptable until she was released on her own at 18. This book switches from the past to present and we learn that had a brief period of time living with Elizabeth who taught her the language of flowers. Once she is out of foster care she is given a chance to work for a florist and starts giving people specific flowers to help them based on their meaning. She meets up with Elizabeth's nephew and he shares her interest in the language of flowers and they fall in love. This is a story of how Victoria learns to accept love and start her life afresh.

It was eye opening to read about growing up in the foster care system and gave me new perspectives on women who abandon their babies.
