The Art of Arranging Flowers
By: Lynne Branard
The Art of Arranging Flowers takes place around Ruby Jewell, the town florist. She has owned her shop for a couple of decades and is the go-to person to solve any situation that life may bring. Using flowers and colors, Ruby provides a holistic approach to help the members of her community, all the while still suffering from the loss of her sister many years ago. As new people begin to enter Ruby’s life, she realizes she can’t hide behind her flower counter forever.
This book screams unique, from the old fashioned cut pages to the plot lines and it won’t let readers down. Short, easy to read chapters will have readers turning the page quickly. Though some may expect this to be just another sweet romantic story, this book covers a wide range of topics from cancer, alcoholism to abandonment. The author uses Ruby’s own inner pain and her uncanny knack of reading people, to help bring light to these sensitive topics. The poetic prose brings a bit of majestic beauty that matches the eccentric characteristics of this small town. Fans of Southern Literature will want to take note of this author and this book.
