    Story
    "Addictive series but watch out for duplicates!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a very engaging series, but it is very frustrating to try to get into a series when the Book 1 and Book 2 are not available as recorded books in the U.S.--- Audible offers Book 3 under two different titles (A War of Flowers and Scent of Secrets) and Book 4 under two titles ( In Pursuit of Pearls and Faith and Beauty) which is confusing--it looks like Audible offers four titles in the series, and in reality it is only two. Readers should be advised to check the length of the books to avoid re-purchasing the book you just read!


    What other book might you compare A War of Flowers to and why?

    It is in the same time period and flavor of The Milliner's Secret and The Beast's Garden. In nonfiction, Erik Larsen's "In the Garden of the Beasts" covers much of the same factual material.


    Have you listened to any of Julie Teal’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I had not listened to Julie Teal before and was impressed with her ability to clearly delineate the characters without resorting to silly voices.

    "Longwinded Confusing at times"

    I thought the narrative was great and really aided the delivery of the story. I loved loved the first 2 books in this trilogy but found this one overly long with not a lot going on I would read another book by this author but could not recommend this one.
