A moving and eloquent novel about love, grief, renewal - and the powerful language of flowers. Ruby Jewell knows flowers. In her 20 years as a florist, she has stood behind the counter at the Flower Shoppe with her faithful dog, Clementine, resting at her feet. A customer can walk in, and with just a glance or a few words, Ruby can throw together the perfect arrangement for any occasion.
Whether intended to rekindle a romance, mark a celebration, offer sympathy, or heal a broken heart, her expressive floral designs mark the moments and milestones in the lives of her neighbors. It's as though she knows just what they want to say, just what they need. Yet Ruby's own heart's desires have gone ignored since the death of her beloved sister. It will take an invitation from a man who's flown to the moon, the arrival of a unique little boy, and concern from a charming veterinarian to reawaken her wounded spirit. Any life can be derailed, but the healing power of community can put it right again.

This was a beautiful story filled with insight and wisdom about love and living fully. The narrator did a wonderful job painting the picture of each colorful character. I highly recommend this amazing book!
Beautiful story, flow, and characters. A must read. I fell in love with each character and felt as if I was right there with them. Full of love, friendship, and hope. You will need tissues, not because of anything horrific, but so full of emotion and you will feel you have taken the journey as well.
No spoilers, too many characters and story lines, but not over detailed or confusing...you will never want to leave the book.
