The Language of Flowers: A Novel by Vanessa Diffenbaugh

The Language Of Flowers

Abuse, in any form, colors our world and our relationships. I loved this author and her ability to show the difficulty that comes with trying to open yourself up to life after tough events crush your spirit. In Language of Flowers, you\\\'ll find yourself rooting with your heart for these characters to find their way to real, fulfilling life.

Gotta Love Flavia

I bought this book on a whim, when our local Boarders went out of business. I was drawn to the title and the cover. I open the book, started reading and completely fell in love with Miss Flavia de Luce! This spunky girl sleuth with her own chemistry lab and love of all things poison will capture your heart with her spirit of adventure. Whether she is plotting revenge against her older, and often self-absorbed, sisters or following the trail of a mysterious stamp, Flavia delights on every front.

Hard To Look Past the Controversy

This book is difficult to read, not only because of the excessive detail written into each interaction, but because the reader has to ask at every turn, \\\"is this truth or fiction?\\\" There are many books and stories out there worth the time and effort of reading, this is not one of them.

Gourmet Adventure On the High Seas!

The characters are engaging. The setting is intoxicating. The story is engrossing. The writing is exquisite. There isn\\\'t an aspect of this book, from the cover, to the title, to the writing that I didn\\\'t adore. The story-line has substance and wit, while the characters work their way directly into your heart. This one goes down as an all time favorite book.

Pure Poetry

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I savored each word as I wound my way through the lives of these characters. The writing is almost lyrical. The author takes you on an epic journey through the highs, lows and in-betweens of a strong, closely knit family and you when you finally leave them, you are all the better for having known them. These are stories that will stay with you. To say nothing of the beautiful language used to describe each emotion and situation. This is a book to be savored and loved.
