The secret language of flowers

Victoria is afraid of physical contact. She is afraid of words, of her and those of others. Above all, you are afraid of loving and let yourself be loved. There is only one place where all the fears of her fade in silence and peace: it is the secret garden of her in the public park of Portoro Hill, in San Francisco. The flowers, who planted herself in this unknown corner of the city, are her home. The refuge of her. The voice of her. And through their language that Victoria communicates the emotions of her deeper than her. Lavender for mistrust, the thistle for misanthropy, the white rose for loneliness. Because Victoria didn't have an easy life. Abandoned in a cot, she spent childhood by jumping from an adoptive family to another. Until the meeting, dramatic and shocking, with Elizabeth, the only real mother you've ever had, the woman who taught her the secret language of flowers. And now, it's thanks to this magical gift that Victoria has taken her life: she has eighteen years now, and she works as a florist. The flowers of her are among the most requested of the city, they give happiness and take care of the soul. But Victoria has not yet found the flower able to remove the wound of her. Because her heart goes behind a secret fault. The only one able to extirparla is a mysterious boy who seems to know everything about her. Only he can take that weight from the heart of Victoria, like torn thorns to a stem. Only he can take care of her invisible roots. Only the most unripe heart of the white rose can become red of passion.
