The Language of Flowers

A Novel

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it's been more useful in communicating mistrust and solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, she is unable to get close to anybody, and her only connection to the world is through flowers and their meanings. Now eighteen and emancipated from the system with nowhere to go, Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But an unexpected encounter with a mysterious stranger has her questioning what's been missing in her life. And when she's forced to confront a painful secret from her past, she must decide whether it's worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness.
Rezension
"Instantly enchanting . . . [Vanessa Diffenbaugh] is the best new writer of the year."- Elle
"[An] original and brilliant first novel . . . a mesmerizing storyteller . . . I would like to hand Vanessa Diffenbaugh a bouquet of bouvardia (enthusiasm), gladiolus (you pierce my heart) and lisianthus (appreciation). . . . And there is one more sprig I should add to her bouquet: a single pink carnation (I will never forget you)."-Brigitte Weeks, The Washington Post
"Fascinating . . . [Diffenbaugh] clearly knows both the human heart and her plants, and she keeps us rooting for the damaged Victoria."- O: The Oprah Magazine (book of the week)
"Diffenbaugh effortlessly spins this enchanting tale, making even her prickly protagonist impossible not to love."- Entertainment Weekly
