Description: The Bookies will discuss The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh

Publisherís Summary: 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, itís been more useful in communicating grief, 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, Victoria has nowhere to go and sleeps in a public park, where she plants a small garden of her own. Soon a local florist discovers her talents, and Victoriarealizes she has a gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But a mysterious vendor at the flower market has her questioning whatís been missing in her life, and when sheís forced to confront a painful secret from her past, she must decide whether itís worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness.
