The Language of Flowers

language-of-flowersVictoria Jones is a young woman who, abandoned at birth, has grown up in California’s foster care system.  She is angry and lonely but gets a final chance of a good home with Elizabeth, a single woman running her family’s vineyard.  Just prior to being adopted, a terrible misunderstanding occurs and Victoria is put in a group home, before becoming homeless. She finally lands a job in a flower shop where she uses her knowledge of the meaning of flowers to reach out to customers, and especially to Grant, a young man who holds a key to her past.  The storyline goes back and forward between the present and the past and is beautifully written.  The Language of Flowers is a memorable story of survival and loss and ultimately love.
