ELLA GRIFFIN The Flower Arrangement

Irish novelist Ella Griffin returns with a delightful tale woven around a Dublin florist. Lara, owner of Blossom & Grow, watches those who’ve bought her flowers head off to face all manner of life-changing occasions. But since her husband left her, Lara finds it hard to believe that flowers really mean true love. Katy wonders if her relationship with Ben will ever blossom the way she hopes. When a courier leaves a bunch of flowers on her desk, she begins to consider a different path. Ciara works in Blossom & Grow. She’s fascinated by the man who visits every week to buy a beautiful bouquet. But surely he’s in a relationship? Unless he has other reasons for visiting Blossom & Grow... Weaving together a delightful cast of characters, Ella Griffin’s gorgeous new novel brings her warmth, wit and wisdom to a little Irish florist. Ella Griffin always wanted to be a writer, but before she got around to it she was a waitress, an extra, a pickle-factory worker, an award-winning advertising copywriter and a travel writer. Her debut novel, Postcards from the Heart, was published in 2010.
