Publisher's Weekly Review

A Literary Guild dual main selection in cloth, this is a predictable fairy tale of a young woman's success in love and the floral business. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


Library Journal Review

This novel is akin to Barbara Taylor Bradford's sagas of ambitious, entrepreneurial women. Catherine Eliot, at 18, is aimless until she falls into a job in a flower shop and realizes that this is the business she was born for. Though her social register family has cut her off, she uses her own social connections to build her business into a giant. This rejected daughter does all she can to rescue her family from financial and emotional distress. Though her help is neither understood nor appreciated, Catherine eventually finds contentment in herself, her marriage, and her business. An absorbing story and heroine, recommended for any popular fiction collection.-- Marylaine Block, St. Ambrose Univ . Lib . , Davenport, Ia. (c) Copyright 2010.
