About

Overview

A New York Times bestseller
An Indie Next Pick

To write The Language of Flowers‚ Diffenbaugh found inspiration in her own experience as a foster mother.

The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions‚ but for Victoria Jones it’s been more useful in communicating grief‚ mistrust‚ and solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system‚ Victoria is eighteen and emancipated. With nowhere to go‚ she sleeps in a public park where she plants her own small garden. When a local florist discovers her talents‚ Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through flowers.
