If April showers bring May flowers, what do Mayflowers bring?

... A new mini-challenge!!!

Mission: Read a book that has the name of a flower in its title. Or a flower displayed prominently on the cover. This is a one book mini-challenge to be completed between May 1 - 31.

Examples:
White Oleander
The Secret History of the Pink Carnation
Daisy Miller

*If your book has a floral cover, please post and share the pretty. *

I have just finished La dame aux camélias by Alexandre Dumas fils.
I prefer his writing style to his father's. This was one sad book!

Very sad! .... Operatically sad. ;-)

Thank you for the suggestion - I’ve decided to try this. Though I “cheated” & got an English version!

Trisha | 826 comments I read Camille The Lady of the Camellias by Alexandre Dumas fils .

It’s beautifully written, especially considering I read a translation. As Rosemarie says, it was very sad. But I’m pleased I read it.
