As Violet secretly practices ballet in Aunt Abigail’s living room, she stumbles and knocks a box off a shelf. Down fall cards, photographs, and a letter – a love letter from her father to her deceased mother. Violet can hardly believe her eyes. Her aunt has always given the impression that she didn’t know her father, but now Violet finally has a name – and a thousand questions. Violet and her friends decide to look for Violet’s father, naturally with the help of a magical flower.

About the Series

For nine-year-old Violet, there is no better place than her Auntie Abigail's flower shop in a small British town. Both of them share a special gift: With the aid of a book of ancient flower recipes that only Violet and her aunt can read, they use flowers to heal and help people. Over the course of the series, Violet is being introduced to the secret flower magic. In each self-contained volume, she solves a major problem, though of course not without a few hiccups. Her friends, twins Jack (Jaqueline) and Zack, everyday life at school and cheeky animals play important roles as well.
