    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.

    Diana - Audible says: "You don't need a green thumb to enjoy this one"
    "Just beautiful! Best book read in a long time!"

    Story
    If you could sum up The Language of Flowers in three words, what would they be?

    moving, eloquent, beautiful


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Victoria - she was self aware, honest and flawed. While I didn't always like her, I loved hearing her self analysis and awareness.


    Was there a moment in the book that particular moved you?

    Every moment in this book moved me.


    Any additional comments?

    I could not have loved it more. It was the best book I've read in a very long time. The topic did not draw me, but a friend recommended it, and I am now ready to start it from the beginning and read all over again.
