As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
This book came out in 2012, and this is a fictional novel.
And Vanessa's book was a New York Times Best Seller, and it features the Victorian language of flowers.
This is one of the books I always keep on the nightstand in our guest bedroom.
The Amazon description of this book says:
“The Victorian Language of Flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it’s been more useful in communicating mistrust and solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, she is unable to get close to anybody, and her only connection to the world is through flowers and their meanings. Now eighteen and emancipated from the system with nowhere to go, Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But an unexpected encounter with a mysterious stranger has her questioning what’s been missing in her life. And when she’s forced to confront a painful secret from her past, she must decide whether it’s worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness.”
This book is 334 pages of garden-inspired fiction featuring newfound love as well as heartache.
