Ella Griffin: The Flower Arrangement
The theme of the book was that flowers have an impact on those who sell them as well as those who receive them. I loved it at the beginning with the accent on flowers when Lara opened the shop and how she watched the impact on people she sold flowers to for various happy and sad occasions.
Unfortunately the story drifted into other people's problems which flowers can't always solve and the number of different people got so diverse that halfway through I lost the plot, disconnected with the story and didn't finish the book. I normally try to persevere but on this occasion I gave up.
Thanks to The Reading Room and the publisher for a copy of this book for review.
