#ARC #Review: The Flower Arrangement by Ella Griffin
About The Flower Arrangement: Golden peonies bowing their heads beneath blue delphinium bells. Delicate pink anemones threaded between freckled green orchids. Soft apricot roses woven together with velvety purple irises. Every bouquet tells a story. And every story begins at Blossom & Grow, a tiny jewel-like flower shop in the heart of Dublin. Here, among the buckets of fragrant blooms, beneath the flickering candles and lanterns, Lara works her magic. Translating feelings into flower arrangements that change hearts and lives. But what about her own heart? Has she really healed since she lost her chance to be a mother? What will happen when her own story takes a sudden turn? Can the flowers that heal the customers work their magic on the florist? Drawing together a delightful cast of characters, Ella Griffin brings her warmth, wit and wisdom to a captivating tale woven around a Dublin florist.
Ella Griffin weaves a beautifully and cleverly written tale full of charm and heart. The Flower Arrangement is chick lit at its best!
I'll admit that flowers are one of my favorite things this world has to offer (next to books and coffee, of course), so there was no way I could not read this story. Add in the fact that it takes place in Dublin, and I'm helpless in fighting the spell Ella Griffin is weaving.
I was completely enraptured by Lara and her ability to connect with other people through flowers. She's the glue that holds this story together as we are introduced to the various characters and their stories. Every single character and every single story line made me feel, whether it was grief or happiness, I felt it to the very depth of my heart.
The Flower Arrangement is simply a really magical story that I highly recommend!
