Drawing together a delightful cast of characters, Ella Griffin brings her warmth, wit and wisdom to this captivating tale of the connections that bring us all together.

Every bouquet tells a story. And every story begins at Blossom & Grow, a tiny flower shop in the heart of Dublin... Among the buckets of fragrant blooms, beneath the flickering candles and lanterns, Lara works her magic, translating feelings into flower arrangements that change hearts and lives. She is no stranger to the power of flowers herself. They gave her hope when she was a child who lost a mother, and, again when she was a mother who lost a child. But old wounds take time to heal, and life has more heartbreak in store. What will it take for the woman who can unlock everybody else's emotions to open up her own heart? READERS GUIDE INSIDE

Review quote

"A compelling and human cast of characters, full of humor, heart, heartbreak, and the language of flowers make this perfect for fans of Marian Keyes."--Booklist "All human life is in The Flower Arrangement and is portrayed with great tenderness by Ella Griffin, who offers an astonishing insight into people...The writing is exquisite and I cared deeply about the characters."--Marian Keyes, Good Housekeeping (UK) "Griffin's charming and insightful third novel (after The Heart Whisperer and Postcards from the Heart) examines how random lives are connected, like characters in a Raymond Carver story. For fans of women's fiction, especially those who enjoy other Irish writers such as Marian Keyes and Cathy Kelly."--Library Journal "Ella Griffin's beautiful writing enables you to feel like you are quite literally stepping into the fragrant surroundings of Blossom & Grow." "One of the most charming books I have ever read." "A pleasure to read--assured, witty, and highly likeable."--Irish Mail on Sunday "This beautifully written story explores the joys and sorrows of Lara, who opens a flower shop in the heart of Dublin following the death of her baby son."--Candis Magazine (UK) "This is a book to inspire. Inspire you to think positive thoughts, never judge people by appearances and learn to forgive."--BleachHouse Library
