Reviews for The Language of Flowers
Moving and engaging. This book makes you think, and it makes you question your own ideas about life and morals. The self destructive nature of humankind is set against our need to protect and be protected. What happens when these collide? This book happened.
The Victorian language of flowers is interwoven with the telling of Victoria Jones (often disturbing ) past and present, giving deeper meaning to the story. I wondered at times how someone who is so in need of love is able to create so much love amongst others.
Read this book. You will learn a lot, you will cry a bit, and you will be inspired by the strength of humankind and the small things that make a difference to everyday lives. by Hannah Jermyn
