The Flower Arrangement
After the stillbirth of her son, Lara poured everything she had into becoming a florist, and now her shop is thriving. Lara has a true talent for flowers, and her arrangements speak to those who are lucky enough to discover her shop. Unfortunately, much of the rest of her life is falling apart; her marriage is on the rocks, her father is sick, and she’s not sure how much more of her there is to give. Will she be able to let her passion for flowers open back up her own soul?
Ella Griffin’s novel The Flower Arrangement is a fascinating glimpse into how the lives of many can overlap in unimaginable ways. Lara touches so many through her job as a florist, whether it’s the brides who come to her for wedding flowers, mourners who can’t possibly see past their own grief to plan funeral arrangements, or even just ordinary people buying flowers for those they love. In some ways, this novel is like a series of vignettes; readers will love seeing how two bouquets meant for two different women with the same name impact their lives, or how flowers assist the process of one older woman letting go of the bitterness surrounding her son’s death. This is a unique novel that will have readers hooked.
