Like a Flower in Bloom (Review)
This review is for the book "Like a Flower in Bloom" by Siri Mitchell. This book is in the genre of historical romance, which is a genre that I enjoy but is not my favorite. This book in particular is probably my favorite historical romance novel I have ever read.
Charlotte Withersby is a young lady who is a botanist through and through - so much so that she has absolutely no concept of society's rules or how to act like a lady. When her uncle decides that she absolutely must get involved in society in order to find a husband, she leaves scandals all along the way - discussing the sexual reproduction of plants, wearing the wrong dress to go dancing, and even bringing up the subject of scandals to a gentleman. Her complete ignorance was really funny to me, and surprising because I don't see a lot of humor in this genre. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more by Siri Mitchell in the future.
Thank you to Bethany House for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
