The Art of Arranging Flowers by Lynne Branard



Ruby is a well respected florist in the small town of Creekside, Washington. She knows the inns and outs of the town residents and can make the perfect floral arrangement for the recipient. She uses the meanings behind flowers and their names to bring peace, love or comfort to the person on the receiving end.

Ruby has closed herself off from others. She is grieving the death of her sister and isn't interested in letting anyone into her life or heart , other than her dog, Clementine. When, Will a 10 year old boy and Captain Dan enter the picture, she is forced to reevaluate things and take a chance on opening up her heart.

I have to be honest and say that it took quite some time for me to really get into this novel.  I almost gave up on it but forced myself to read one more chapter and I'm glad that I did.  Once you get past the lyrical descriptions of flowers and get down to the character development and storyline the book takes a turn in the right direction.


Grade: C+
