The language of flowers

The language of flowers

Diffenbaugh, Vanessa, author

The Victorian language of flowers was used to express emotions: honeysuckle for devotion, azaleas for passion and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it has been more useful for communicating feelings like grief, mistrust and solitude. After a childhood in foster care, Victoria, now 18, has nowhere to go, and sleeps in a public park, where she plants a small garden of her own. When her talent is discovered by a local florist, she discovers her gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But it takes a meeting with a mysterious vendor at the flower market for her to realise what's been missing in her own life. As she starts to fall for him, though, she must confront a painful secret from her past - and decide whether it's worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness
