This review is from: The Language of Flowers (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a lovely book. It centres around Victoria, a young girl who has obviously had a troubled childhood and spent time in and out of foster homes.
The story runs with two parallel timelines - her experiences at one particular foster home (where everything seems run smoothly) at the age of 11 and then her current life. Throughout everything, flowers and their meaning play an important part.
The language used is lovely and the story is compelling, giving a credible insight into how foster/troubled children think and act. This isn't a thriller or a particularly action-packed novel - simply a book that tells a rather lovely story. I liked it :)
