    "NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLER 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 ... Show more

Gail R

Poignant, powerful read

by Gail R on May 18, 2014

Foster children have no place to go when they "age out"--turn 18 and are no longer eligible for system services. Many become lost souls: no family waiting with open arms or hearts to help them find a job, go to college, or even find a place to live. This is the story of one such girl, her search for a place in someone's heart, and finally the memories and people who make it possible for her to find a place to live, grow, and love in a new kind of family. Told in dream- like flashbacks and gritty images of poverty and the homeless, the book is nonetheless a romance as well as a book about parenting and a failing social system.

Flowers and Fostercare

by Gloria W on May 1, 2014

The first several chapters were about a destructive and unlikeable, foul mouthed girl soon to be aged-out. Where are the flowers? As the story progresses the connection is made and becomes a very intriguing story.

Too slow

by Barbara H on Apr 13, 2013

I really had to push myself to finish reading this book. It was so sad and on the dark side. It was touted as a good read, but it was not for me. It made me feel depressed just reading it.
