The people of Rivenhoe are worried because elderly Mrs. Juniper has disappeared. Aunt Abigail promises her husband to find her, but then she disappears without a trace, too! Now it is up to Violet to bring them both back with the help of the magical flower book. Unfortunately they are out of the miraculous berries she needs, and she can only get more in Scotland. Along with her cat, Lord Nelson, Violet sets off on a journey into uncertain territory.
Includes recipe for Aunt Abigail’s Magical Scented Oranges.

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.
