Victoria Jones kennt von Geburt an nur Waisenhäuser und Pflegefamilien. Wie ein Gegenstand wurde sie von einer Bleibe zur nächsten weitergereicht. Schon als Kind hat sie sich deshalb zu einer wortkargen, menschenscheuen Kratzbürste entwickelt. Einzig für Blumen interessiert sie sich, und für deren Sprache, denn die hat sie von Elizabeth gelernt, dem einzigen Menschen, von dem sie je Liebe erfahren hat. Mit achtzehn Jahren ist Victoria obdachlos und ganz auf sich allein gestellt – bis sie einen Job in einem kleinen Blumenladen findet. Auf dem Markt der Blumenhändler lernt sie schließlich einen jungen Mann kennen. Erstaunt stellt sie fest, dass Grant ebenfalls die Sprache der Blumen versteht. Gegen ihren Willen keimt in Victoria nach langer Zeit wieder Hoffnung: auf Liebe, auf eine Familie, auf ein Zuhause ... Doch ihre Vergangenheit, ihre schmerzvollen Erinnerungen an Elizabeth holen sie immer wieder ein. Kann es Grant gelingen, sie trotzdem zu lieben – so unberechenbar, so verstockt, so verletzlich, wie sie ist?

The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars. Medical theory and practice of the 1700s developed rapidly, as is evidenced by the extensive collection, which includes descriptions of diseases, their conditions, and treatments. Books on science and technology, agriculture, military technology, natural philosophy, even cookbooks, are all contained here. ++++ The below data was compiled from various identification fields in the bibliographic record of this title.
