From Barnes & Noble:
Victoria Jones is just eighteen, recently "emancipated" from British foster-care system and now sleeping on park benches. Timid and self-deprecating, she speaks with confidence in only one tongue, the language of flowers. Her gift with floral subtleties, however, proves to be enough, at least temporarily; it opens the way to a new vocation that nurtures both others and herself. Eventually though, Victoria discovers that to truly flourish, she must grapple with the painful secrets of her own past.

I LOVED THIS BOOK! I loved the flawed, real characters. I loved the vivid descriptions of the flowers, I felt as though I was stroking the petals and could smell them. I loved the twisty and unexpected story. I loved the setting. I loved how the meanings of the flowers was so critical to the story.
