I unexpectedly enjoyed this book! The illustrations sprinkled throughout and the use of color text here and there made the book feel like a gift or work of art - such a lovely experience! The story itself was interesting - I don't know much about roses, but this mixed in a bit of light history and interesting characters which made for a nice story.
