Everyone makes mistakes... Letty was going to go places. She was going to be someone. Then she got pregnant, and her plans changed. Now she's a single parent with two children she's convinced she can't care for, a dead-end job she's struggling to keep, a home in a half forgotten part of town, and no prospect of anything changing any time soon. Determined to give her children a better future, she takes a decision that may change all their lives. But perhaps she's not quite done making mistakes. And her son, Alex, may be about to make one of his own - because, sometimes, the biggest mistakes we make are when we're prepared to risk everything for those we love.

A beautiful gift book celebrating the forgotten language of flowers. "A flower is not a flower alone; A thousand thoughts invest it"All over the world, flowers are an integral part of human culture whether it is the perfect table centre for a wedding, a beautiful bouquet for a birthday, a message of thanks, or to pay one's respect at a funeral. But, while everyone knows that red roses signify love, few may realise that an entire language of flowers exists with every bloom, folliage and plant having a particular emotion attached, be it hazel for reconcilliation, wisteria for welcome or ivy for fidelity. This unique language was created by the romantic early Victorians who carefully planned every bouquet and posy so as to deliver a desired message. Bringing the language to a new generation, this beautifully illustrated miscellany contains fifty profiled flowers, a dictionary searchable by emotion, and ideas for creating bouquets and arrangements for specific occasions. This gift book is a novel present that any flower lover will want to own.
