From the Publisher
Annotation Victoria Jones thought she might have finally found her way out of the cycle of foster and group homes that had been her life up to that point. After spending time in roughly 30 foster families, Victoria gets taken in by a wonderfully caring woman....Eight years have passed now, and Victoria lives on her own, finding solace and expression in the poetry of Victorian botanicals. In her debut novel, Vanessa Diffenbaugh unravels what happened in those intervening years--patiently and seductively. What transpired to tear Victoria out of the most loving situation she had found? What happened after she left, during her time on the streets of San Francisco? And now that she is 18 and working at a flower shop, can things settle down and "normalize" for her? She has a boyfriend named Grant, but Victoria herself doubts that she will ever be able to let her guard down enough to experience love.
Editors Note When Victoria Jones starts working for a florist, she realizes her talent with flowers helps her change the lives of the people who buy her creations. But when she must confront her painful past, she has to decide how much she is willing to change.
