I have been very lucky in my career to have a wide variety of experiences. Science teacher and technology director.
It is a good book. I thought it showed how one interest can change someone's life for the better.
When she left her baby alone in her apartment.
When she comes home to stay!
No, some parts are so intense you may want to take it in small bites.
I am hooked on flower meanings because of this book!
No but only because I rarely listen or read to a book twice.
Triumph over circumstances.
Yes I liked the voice for the main characters.
The regret over the fire but being unable to change the course she set in motion.
No, it just wasn't a book I would choose. (book club pick)
Her terrible decisions and lack of ability to seize an opportunity.
Not To finish
Memoirs of a Geisha because it has a feel-good ending, emotions, and a great protagonist!
No, but would like to listen to another one.
Yes, I recommend this book to everyone. I would listen to or read it again. It is also a very informative book on flowers, bushes etc.
Good and touching story about life and love! Great listen! I really thought is was well written. Would listen to another one of her stories!
How the author created a compelling story using flowers as a backdrop
It was hopeful
Liked that the author stayed true to San Francico and its locations.
Farther up on the ranks than most. The reader was good, and so was the story.
I really don't know. It's a book different than any other. You learn about the language of flowers, which is beautiful, and get a great story along with it.
She did'nt change voices particularly for different characters, but I was still able to distinguish who was who.
No! That's almost impossible with most books for me. I never expect that.
A wonderful story, and performer.
Really enjoyed this one. Interesting subject. Narrator pleasant. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because it wasn't completely amazing. But would definitely recommend.
This story is the audiobook equivalent of a page turner, and not in a cheap salacious way some books can be but rather because the writing is as charming and multi-layered as the characters.
Just when I thought the story had found its footing, a huge plot surprise stunned me. There were several times throughout listening that I had to rewind, relisten to be sure I heard correctly, then text message the person who recommended me the book to exclaim my shock or disbelief!
A very voracious reader recommended this book to me, and I am more of a novice reader, and the fact we both enjoyed it thoroughly speaks volumes.
Love books with a lot of heart. Deep character development and intelligent writers.
I enjoyed listening to this book. It held my interest throughout the story.
I liked the foster mother.
She did an excellent job
I liked the flower shop owner.
