Books from the Backlog - The Art of Arranging Flowers

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Goodreads:  The Art of Arranging Flowers by Lynne Branard

Blurb:  Ruby Jewell knows flowers. In her twenty years as a florist she has stood behind the counter at the Flower Shoppe with her faithful dog, Clementine, resting at her feet. A customer can walk in, and with just a glance or a few words, Ruby can throw together the perfect arrangement for any occasion.
Whether intended to rekindle a romance, mark a celebration, offer sympathy, or heal a broken heart, her expressive floral designs mark the moments and milestones in the lives of her neighbors. It’s as though she knows just what they want to say, just what they need.

Yet Ruby’s own heart’s desires have gone ignored since the death of her beloved sister. It will take an invitation from a man who’s flown to the moon, the arrival of a unique little boy, and concern from a charming veterinarian to reawaken her wounded spirit. Any life can be derailed, but the healing power of community can put it right again.

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  This is one of my most overdue NetGalley books and I'm trying to make some progress there.


  1. It sure sounds lovely, I like the community spritit.

  2. This sounds really good, Katherine! I hope that you enjoy it and I know it will be nice to mark one of those older books from your list.

  3. Would be good I think. Does sound inviting.
