The Delphian Review Club met recently in the reception room of First United Methodist Church, with Judi Pitts serving as hostess and Gail Latimer as co-hostess.
Mrs. Pitts presented the program by giving a book review on “Language of Flowers” by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. The novel is about a child abandoned by her mother at birth who grew up in the foster care system. This book follows her life through group homes, foster homes and transitional homes, where her love of plant life and flowers becomes her only focus and passion as she begins her study of the romantic meanings and definition of each flower. This former foster child learns to connect with a world she rejected one bloom at a time. Eventually, she works in a florist shop and then owns her own shop to teach others the language of flowers.
Seventeen members were present. It was announced the November meeting will be held at the home of Martha Clendenin with Linda Simrell presenting the program.
