I really enjoyed this book and was sad for it to be over. I really loved how the story went between the past and present. It was a really quick listen and I didn't want to put it down. I also loved hearing about how the flowers were used to express emotions so descriptively. Being descriptive with words and emotions is so important and she was able to show that with each flower and what they specifically meant. It was a great listen and I'd recommend it to anyone!
The story was read very nicely and the way that it was written was in the form of story telling and reliving the past in many occasions. I really enjoyed that aspect and in comparison to other audiobooks I've listened to this one was just as good or better.
I really enjoyed how it was told and it's a perfect book to be listened to. Another neat feature was the author actually speaking at the end and playing his own actual clips that he used while interviewing people in the south in order to research midwives and develop his own story.
At first, I wasn't able to get into the book but once the characters got developed I was intrigued to continue listening and finished the book fairly quickly.
Very well written book and a great listen overall!
