A Memory of Violets: A Novel of London's Flower Sellers by Hazel Gaynor was published February 3, 1015 by William Morrow.
In 1912, twenty-year-old Tilly Harper leaves her native Lake District for London, to become assistant housemother at Mr. Shaw’s Home for Watercress and Flower Girls. For years, the home has cared for London’s flower girls—orphaned and crippled children living on the grimy streets and selling posies of violets and watercress to survive.
Tilly discovers a diary written by an orphan named Florrie—a young Irish flower girl who died of a broken heart after she and her sister, Rosie, were separated. Tilly sets out to discover what happened to Rosie. But the search will not be easy. Full of twists and surprises, it leads the young woman into unexpected places, including the depths of her own heart.Looking forward to reading them both. What's on your reading list this week?
