18 year old Victoria Jones finds a job in a florist where she uses her knowledge of flowers and their emotional connections to help others, and ultimately helps herself to heal the pain of her past life in the foster care system.

 

The Language of Flowers, Vanessa Diffenbaugh’s mesmerizing, moving, and elegantly written debut novel, beautifully weaves past and present, creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable young woman whose gift for flowers helps her change the lives of others even as she struggles to overcome her own troubled past.
