Bestselling author Petra Durst-Benning’s Seed Traders’ Saga continues, as a young woman in nineteenth-century Baden-Baden risks everything to pursue her dream of becoming a florist.

Twenty-year-old Flora Kerner has arrived in Baden-Baden, the “Summer Capital of Europe.” Having spurned the family seed trade, Flora has instead chosen to accept a floristry apprenticeship in the famed German spa town. She is a quick study in the art of flower arranging, but progress is slower in matters of the heart.

As her magnificent displays and keen eye soon reverse the fortunes of her mentor’s shop, she attracts the notice of princesses and other royal clientele. Flora’s found her passion—or at least she hopes she has. But as her new life begins to blossom, does she dare risk everything to discover where her true heart lies?

All Over the Place

This story couldn’t decide what it wanted to be. The characters were flat and the plot very predictable. Lots of poorly developed characters who were obviously only there to move the predictable story along. The romance is not very romantic. The narrator’s voice was high pitched and annoying especially when she was trying to sound upset. The only reason I finished this book is because I never give up on a book. This was s “deal of the day” and I now know why.

Be Sure To Listen To The SAMPLE First

I loved The Seed Woman and was very happy to see book 2 available. However, the narrator sounds like she is reading to a children's group. Very overdone and very distracting. Perhaps I will read the book instead. LISTEN TO THE SAMPLE before purchase.
