    This was a book that I fully engaged with

    Now, I’m not a huge historical novel reader, in fact, it is often a genre I shy away from. That doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a beautiful story when I see one, and this was most certainly beautiful, both inside and out. Brought up in a life of luxury, living in a huge house in London with her father and their maids, butlers, etc. Twenty-year-old Isabella Carrington is used to spending her days socialising, having lunch at Claridge’s, and shopping. Her life of privilege comes to an abrupt end when her father loses his financial investment when the company he invested in is destroyed by a fire. Knowing that he was going to lose everything, he sent Isabella off to live with her mother’s brother, her Uncle Frederick and his family in a little village called Dawlish in Devon. Isabella is shocked to learn that she will be living with the family in a tiny semi-detached house, sharing a bedroom with two of her cousins and expected to help around the house and with the family’s flower business. The Flower Seller is one of the most delightful books that I have had the pleasure of reading in a long time. The characters are all divine, especially Isabella. This is a young woman who was well educated, used to everyone doing everything for her, always having enough money to purchase anything she wanted. Then out of the blue she is forced to go and live with relatives she had never heard of before, in their tiny home, and work too! Ms. Finlay has certainly done her research in order to capture the time period perfectly. It was lovely to be able to see the differences between those with money and the less well off. It was also a joy to read about life, both in historical London and Devon. This was a book that I fully engaged with. I read it in two sittings and enjoyed every minute of it. I look forward to reading more by Linda Finlay in the future.

    The flower seller

    This was a delightful story with lots of unexpected twists and turns. The characters were touchingly real and charming. Easy reading and a very pleasant visit to the English countryside.
