. Popular Book A Victorian Flower Dictionary: The Language of Flowers Companion I remember, I first read the novel of The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh and also remember that the protagonist, Victoria, carried a dictionary meaning of flowers and their importance in the Victorian era, so imagine my surprise when one day, I browsing in bookstores, I found a book, a dictionary of flowers, with his history, his meaning and beautiful artwork, which included a foreword by the same author.It was a revelation to read this book. Maybe not all like them flowers, because as the same Vanessa says in the prologue, we live in an information society, where the form of communication is not the same as it was centuries ago, but still, I think there are certain values that have sadly lost and this book reminded me that firstly, flowers always with us, they are always around us in the midst of nature, in large hills or in a pot at home. Flowers give us joy, flood our senses with its various perfumes, but read this dictionary has taught me that also have many medicinal properties form, aesthetics and even as a weapon. It all depends on who handle. One thing I know for sure is that I will never see any flowers in the same way as before.

It's not only a book for girls, especially since the Victorian era were educated in this aspect as many men as women.
