My book club read this book and everyone loved it. The story is compelling and the description of flowers was beautiful.

There were several intense parts like the birth of Hazel and Victoria's first days with her that I found very disturbing . In the beginning the switching back from past to present was very,very, confusing.

Very refreshing story of a young woman who has never belonged or been understood until she learns the language of flowers from the first mother she has ever really known. Very good story line, alternating the past and present in Victoria's life as she deals with her own skewed view of the world and how she fits in.

I had just finished a large, dense read, and craved something light, yet not trivial, and this book was the perfect thing for that. There was enough trauma in the main protagonist's life that I felt I could become emotionally vested in the course of events for her. In all this was a delightful, relatively light read for me, but once again being light does not mean lacking anything.

***SPOILER ALERT***
**The one The one minus for me in this novel is not just how well, but how easily everything seemed to work out for the girl. People seemed drawn to her, everyone just seemed to like her immediately, and while this is fine, it does have something of a "perfect story" or fairy tale effect. There was no pathos of the rejected person, or the misfit, struggling with those issues along with others; but once again, in spite of the "perfect ending" way everything worked out, I felt engaged with the characters and enjoyed the book.**

I would recommend this for younger readers or for anyone looking for an easy but still engaging read.

If you love flowers, and a good story about a very misunderstood group of people (foster children), this book is for you. Loved it!

Language of Flowers in a realistic love story. Not your typical Boy meets Girl, but love between family and damaged individuals who struggle through their lives. Good character development. A good fast read. Couldn't put it down.

This was the February pick for my book club. After reading the summary on Amazon I was not very intrigued. I do not think the summary does this book justice. I got attached to the characters very quickly and more or less flew through the book. It evoked many emotions and the discussion at our book club reflected the complexity of the characters and situations in this book. Would certainly recommend it.

This was a very interesting read. I loved the way the names and the meanings of the flowers were incorporated into the Novel. The story line kept me reading. It was hard to put down.

Loved the learning the meaning of communication through this life story of flowers. Totally relate to the girl's story, having had friends with foster kids.
