“The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patiences, & red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it’s been more useful in communicating mistrust & solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, she is unable to get close to anybody, & her only connection to the world is through flowers & their meanings. Now eighteen & emancipated from the system with nowhere to go, Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But an unexpected encounter with a mysterious stranger had her questioning what’s been missing in her life. When she’s forced to confront a painful secret from her past, she must decide whether it’s worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness” (Amazon).
