The Flower Seller
All she wanted was a love she could believe in.
Jessie Martin thinks that when it comes to love there are three types of people: the skimmers, the bottom dwellers and the ones who dive for pearls. Jessie is a pearl diver. She had thought her husband William was a pearl diver too. But when William leaves her for a younger woman, it’s not just Jessie’s heart that is broken, her ability to trust is shattered too.
Refusing to retire from the battlefield of life, Jessie resolves to put her heartache behind her. She doesn’t want to be that woman who was too scared to love again. There has to be another pearl diver out there; all she has to do is find him.
What readers have been saying
‘Totally compelling….a real page turner’
‘There was nothing about this book that I didn't like. I've mentioned "well written", and it really is - easy to read, great handling of feelings and emotions (anger and sadness as well as the softer side), wonderfully natural dialogue, excellent description, strong characters, light touches of humour. And the moral issues - around forgiveness, guilt, responsibility - give the whole book an unexpected and welcome depth that really works. This is an author who's found her own voice and totally defies comparison - and I loved it.’
‘The Flower Seller is a beautiful story that teaches you that love is not always lost forever and can be found again….Ellie Holmes has written a fantastic, sometimes rosy, romantic story with all the thorns still intact. This only made the story more believable.’
