    A mesmerizing, moving, and elegantly written debut novel, The Language of Flowers beautifully weaves past and present, creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable woman whose gift for flowers helps her change the lives of others even as she struggles to overcome her own troubled past. 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, it's been more useful in communicating grief, mistrust, and solitude.

    Story

    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!

    Mississippi plantation mistress Amanda Satterfield loses her daughter to cholera after her husband refuses to treat her for what he considers to be a “slave disease.” Insane with grief, Amanda takes a newborn slave child as her own and names her Granada, much to the outrage of her husband and the amusement of their white neighbors. Troubled by his wife’s disturbing mental state and concerned about a mysterious plague sweeping through his slave population, Master Satterfield purchases Polly Shine, a slave reputed to be a healer.

    Story
    Where does The Healing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Very well written book and a great listen overall!
