    The times and species have been changing at a rapid rate, and the social compact is wearing as thin as environmental stability. Adam One, the kindly leader of the God's Gardeners - a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion, as well as the preservation of all plant and animal life - has long predicted a natural disaster that will alter Earth as we know it. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life.

    Story

    I abandoned this book because the story was super confusing (jumped all over the place) and the narrators (one of them anyway) had a grating voice. It was too new-agey or like a hallmark commercial. Saccharine. Also, there were several terrible folk songs included--I guess the paper book had song lyrics or something--but the songs themselves were really bad.
    The book might be good on paper, but this rendition was not.

    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

    This was entertaining, and even gripping at times....the author did a good job of setting up narrative tension and holding a mystery out to entice us. There was also some decent psychological development and likable characters. But sadly it ended up being really predictable and cheesy--I mean, it IS a romance after all.
