a phenomenal book about a girl who grew up in the foster care system…one of the homes she lived in she learned of the language of flowers from the Victorian age. When she aged out of the foster care system, she was homeless, and landed a job in a floral shop and used her skills which helps her work through her past.
I love all of Kate Morton's novels but this one is my favorite. She writes mystery novels that rely heavily on flashing forward and back in time in the UK. They are all slightly Gothic, painstakingly plotted, and romantic to some degree. I highly recommend them to Anglophiles and mystery/romance lovers everywhere.
2.) Heaven is for Real By: Todd Burpo Completed: April 18, 2011 158 Pages (It was a very good book. I found it to be a real quick read, and a Christian storyline about a little boy that got extremely sick, and almost died, but went to heaven and tells his family about his experience in little bits over time.)
