The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh

Summary: 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.

Another great ready and should be a good discussion!

    Hi ladies,

    Is there any chance we could move this time? I was really looking forward to discussing this book but I have a Christmas party starting at 5pm on Saturday (same time as book group). If it can't be moved, no worries - I haven't been a recurring member so I don't hold much clout yet :) Stay warm!
