julesG Don't even know why I picked this trilogy for 21 - I know there is a scene where the MCs are in the desert, neither knowing who they are. 7mo
BarbaraBB Well played! 😘 7mo
Cinfhen I love this!!! Well done 🥳🙌🏻 7mo

Looking for books for the theme online & saw this one. A girl with an abusive father goes to live with her estranged grandmother, a flower farmer, later fleeing from a betrayal to the Australian desert. #AFlowerInTheDesert, it seemed to fit the theme well & after seeing the Litsy love for it, I ordered a copy from Book Depository (cheaper than Amazon & B&N). Another book or so MAY have slipped into the order. 🤷🏼‍♀️#sorrynotsorry

BarbaraBB Haha great story. This happens so often to me! 7mo
Cinfhen Yup!! #BeenThereDoneThat 🥰let us know if the book is good!!!! 7mo

“Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature's law is wrong it
learned to walk with out having feet. Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams, it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else ever cared....👇”

#aflowerinthedesert makes me think of LD. One of my favorite characters of all time is Gus. And I picture him as a tattoo-less Oliver Peck. 🤣 #wanderingjune

Bklover Oh I love Gus!❤️❤️❤️ 7mo

Think metaphor: a lass is a pirate‘s flower aboard his ship in the vast expanse desert of the ocean.

CocoReads That‘s a gorgeous cover! 7mo
BarbaraBB That‘s a beautiful metaphor. 7mo

For #WanderingJune today. I adored this book about a prickly woman finding a path to her happiness. Although it is missing the desert part of #aflowerinthedesert I think cactus blossoms are the most beautiful—beauty in the midst of thorns.

I have not read yet. It has been on my TBR list for a while. Has anyone read yet? Your thoughts?

SoniaC I have. There are parts that are very hard to read but I‘m glad I did. It‘s a worthy book in my opinion. 7mo
Cinfhen Looks like an amazing read #Stacked 7mo
TheSpineView @SoniaC Good to know. Thanks! 7mo
TheSpineView @Cinfhen Yes it does. I am thinking I need to move it up on my TBR list. 7mo
