The Language of Flowers

The Language of Flowers - Vanessa Diffenbaugh This book is beautiful. Through the language of flowers - from the rootless maternal love of moss, the heart that hasn't known love of the white rose, the time of the white poplar - it explores the many facets of love and life that we all experience, but maybe don't stop to appreciate. A broken and damaged heroine learns more about herself and the people in her life that seemed transient but simply lay fallow until she returned. PLEASE READ it.
