The Flower Arrangement

book | Fiction | 2015

From her florist shop window, Lara, owner of Blossom & Grow, watches those who've bought her flowers head off to face all manner of life-changing occasions. Bridal posies, anniversary bouquets, surprise deliveries from secret admirers, new baby bunches - Lara arranges them all. And then there's the sadder occasions - the memorial wreaths, the 'I'm sorry...' flowers.

Since her husband left her, Lara finds it hard to believe that flowers really mean true love and it's hard to imagine she will ever be brave enough to love again.

Katy is facing up to the fact that her relationship with Ben will never blossom the way she hopes. And when a courier leaves a bunch of flowers on her work desk, she begins to think life might have different path in store...

Ciara works in Blossom & Grow and it's been a year since a psychic told her she would 'move into the light'. Now, finally over the man who broke her heart, she's fascinated by the man who visits the shop every week to buy a beautiful bouquet. As much as she's attracted to him, she holds back. Surely he's in a relationship? Unless he has other reasons for visiting Blossom & Grow than to buy those flowers...

Weaving together a delightful cast of characters, Ella Griffin's gorgeous new novel brings her warmth, wit and wisdom to a little Irish florist.
