Victoria Jones has spent her childhood in foster care and her teenage years in group homes. Now emancipated at eighteen, she seeks out a job as a florist’s assistant, using her knowledge of the meaning of flowers she learned from Elizabeth, her last foster mother. Though her arrangements change lives, she is hesitant to accept friendship from others, until an exchange with a flower vendor brings up memories from the past, challenging her ideas of the language of flowers. A tale of hope, love and forgiveness set in San Francisco.
If you’re interested in the meaning of flowers, popular in Victorian times, look for books on flower language in the catalog.
