Book Details

Genre: Fiction

I LOVE that this story was based on a true account!

I, too, work in retail and was so inspired when the book touched on "customers trading brick and mortar stores for online shopping."

As Lilly and Grace showed -- the one thing online shopping cannot give you is the personal service.

But oh how sensitive that personal service can be affected by that person's personal experiences they are now experiencing.

Grace has just endured a broken engagement and the loss of a close employee.

She is trying to make friends with the other employees, however she is also the manager.

Were is that boundary?

When Lilly gives Grace a hibiscus plant, Grace decides to bring it to work that it might be a way to bring all the employees together with a common get the plant to bloom.

"The simple gift is more than a plant. 
When it blooms, so does she. 
But when it dies, she fears love will too."

Along the way personalities will clash, a wedding will happen, a birth will take place, a death will come, and a new store opening will push them all to reveal their true selves.

Powerfully told!
Filled with passionate emotions!
A book worth Reading!
