In this moving debut, deftly narrated by Tara Sands, Victoria emerges from a foster-care system that hasn’t treated her well. She came close to finding a home with her beloved Elizabeth, but her inability to trust led to disaster. Now 18, and on her own, Victoria finds the only way to communicate – and possibly find happiness – is through the flowers she loves and the gift she has in choosing them for others. While this isn't a book I'd listen to again and again, I did enjoy it and found it quietly powerful.

If you could sum up The Language of Flowers in three words, what would they be?
moving, eloquent, beautiful
Who was your favorite character and why?
Victoria - she was self aware, honest and flawed. While I didn't always like her, I loved hearing her self analysis and awareness.
Was there a moment in the book that particular moved you?
Every moment in this book moved me.
Any additional comments?
I could not have loved it more. It was the best book I've read in a very long time. The topic did not draw me, but a friend recommended it, and I am now ready to start it from the beginning and read all over again.
