A Season of Reading - The Language of Flowers


This book hooked me.

It's hard to review it, because I want everyone to read it and I don't want to give anything away!  It brings you through a time in a young woman's life, where she is emancipated from the Foster Care system and has to make a way for herself, and her path is both fascinating and alluring.  The characters she encounters and the way she spends her time fascinated me and the more I read the more I wanted to read.  You flashback to a certain time period in her past which brings her into a completely different light and helps you understand why she reacts to things the way she does.  Isn't it 

The fact that different flowers communicate different things is a concept I was not familiar with, but something about the way she talks about flowers made me want to run through a field of them and go to a flower market immediately.  A girl who is in most ways not dignified or put together certainly appreciates beauty in this way, and she learns to become more comfortable with the beauty she possesses within herself.

I would recommend this book to everyone and anyone.  There is something beautiful about it.  I don't want to give away themes or tell you too much, just that I want you to read it, and then tell me that you read it and then talk to me about it!

Have a lovely weekend friends!
