Only at Target, find the April, 2012, Club Pick "The Language of Flowers"
Acacia for secret love, daffodil for new beginnings, wisteria for welcome, and camellia for My destiny is in your hands. In Victorian times, the language of flowers was used to convey a wide range of expression. But for Victoria Jones, flowers have been more useful in communicating much darker messages. After spending her childhood in the foster-care system, she finds it difficult to connect to people, and her only solace is in flowers and their meanings. Now eighteen and on her own, Victoria spends her first few nights in a public park, where she plants and tends a small garden. Soon, a local florist recognizes Victoria's gift for helping others through the flowers she selects for them. But a mysterious encounter causes Victoria to realize what's been missing from her life. And when she's forced to confront a painful secret from her past, she must decide whether it's worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness.
Featuring a fascinating dictionary of flowers in the back of the book, Vanessa Diffenbaugh's fiction debut is an extraordinary look at love, hope, and the true meaning of family.
