Honestly this book kept making me angry... But I enjoyed it no less. Well written & good story. The knowledge you gain about flowers is interesting too.
This is the most well-developed book I have read in a long time it just felt complete when I finished. She grew she changed and at the end I truly felt like this girl's life I've come full circle, sometimes books leave you hanging at the end and you are wondering the whole time well what happened? But in this book there is a great ending.
Could not put this book down. It kept me in suspense the whole time. Victoria suffered so many setbacks as a young child it is amazing to see how she develops and makes something of her life.
A busy lady, just tryin' to fit her reading in where she can!
Yes, I could not stop listening the first time. The story is about learning to love when you have never been loved. Victoria really was delt a crappy hand and reading her evolution through this story was really cool.
I really liked Renata, she was quirky and kind hearted.
She just made the characters each have their own personalities. I could listen to it like i was watching a movie in my head.
Victoria, it's her story...and it's complex story at that.
I haven't listened to many books yet but find I either love or hate them, none in between.
This is a tough one. At this moment I like Grant the best.
It would be Elizabeth. She's full of knowledge, soft-spoken, and kind.
A school administrator and avid reader and listener of books. At least an hour of every day is spent in the car, and that's where the bulk of my listening is done. I tend to listen to books on "faster" mode so I can get through more books!
I can't remember what inspired me to buy this book, but when I found it in my library I was a little leery of it. Re-reading the synopsis did not draw me in. However, it was next up in the library, so I began listening to it. I was pleasantly surprised by the story and how quickly it drew me in. The past and present of Victoria's story are intertwined through this novel, using the Victorian meaning of flowers as a story-telling mechanism. Enchanting and interesting. I loved it to the last minute.
I enjoyed the story
Renalta. Her character put a lot on perspective
The Victorian language of flowers. I have to look it up!
I got frustrated with Victoria...but then I realized I could not wrap my head around her due to her horrible childhood experiences.... The book really made me pause and think
Slow starter...hang in there. It is worth it
