Victoria, the main character in this book, slowly begins to develop the belief that flowers make their meanings come true. This idea aides in her transformation from a foster child who believes she cannot love or be loved to an adult that can feel the love and connection of family.
I asked myself a few questions whilst reading this book that I thought would be fun to hear about from a whole book club.
1. What flower do you think had the greatest impact on Victoria's ability to love others? What about the ability to let herself be loved?
2. Why was Grant so patient with her during her transformation? What in his life allowed him to see beyond her pushing him away?
3. Which flower did you enjoy the most in Victoria's life? Which one the least?
4. What flowers would you choose for your wedding? Would you want a few strong emotions to influence your marriage or a wide variety?
Here are a few of my favorite flowers with their meanings. The funny thing is I like some of them more and others a lot less knowing their meanings.
Rhododendron- warning of danger; beware
Baby's Breath- everlasting love
Cosmos- joy in love and life
Gerber Daisy- cheerfulness
Lilac- first emotions of love
