Victoria ha paura del contatto fisico, delle parole, di amare e lasciarsi amare. Solo attraverso il linguaggio dei fiori Victoria comunica le sue emozioni più profonde. Non ha avuto una vita facile. Ha passato l’infanzia saltando da una famiglia adottiva a un’altra. Fino all’incontro con Elizabeth, l’unica vera madre che abbia mai avuto, che le ha insegnato il linguaggio segreto dei fiori. Grazie a questo dono, Victoria ha preso in mano la sua vita: ha diciotto anni e lavora come fioraia. I suoi fiori regalano la felicità e curano l’anima. Ma Victoria non ha ancora trovato il fiore in grado di rimarginare la sua ferita. Il suo cuore si porta dietro una colpa segreta. L’unico in grado di estirparla è un ragazzo misterioso che sembra sapere tutto di lei. Il linguaggio segreto dei fiori è una storia di coraggio e di speranza, che ci mostra la forza immensa dell’amore vero che dà senza pretendere nulla in cambio.
