What I'm Reading

one of my favorite authors

another rewarding

visit with the residents of

Three Pines

mindless thrillers

I've started these in order

after having read a few here and there

recommended and loaned by Rebecca

a book

that makes me nod my head frequently
if you're an introvert too

you don't want to miss this one...

audio book

I was just going to listen to it in the car

but am enjoying it so much

it's in the house

making my hooking and stitching

an extra treat...

About the Book

"The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, aster for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it’s been more useful in communicating grief, 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, Victoria has nowhere to go and sleeps in a public park, where she plants a small garden of her own. Soon a local florist discovers her talents, and Victoria realizes that she has a gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But a mysterious vendor at the flower market inspires her to question what’s been missing in her life. And when she’s forced to confront a painful secret from her past, she must decide whether it’s worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness."

Have you ever listened to Louise Penny's books on tape? The man who reads them is fabulous!! She's one of my favorites and I'm pretty sure I should live in Three Pines.
