Moss grows without roots…
Hardened by a lifetime of distrust, disappointment, and heartache, Victoria Jones walks through life alone. Betrayed by those she reluctantly let in, she no longer knows how to trust or love completely. Instead, she has built a fortress firmly protecting what remains of her heart with blocks made of equal parts hurt, anger, and bitterness. Yet, she is softened by an unsuspecting source of beauty and frailty: flowers. Each flower tells a story, it’s meaning emanating from within. Ultimately, it is her gift with flowers and their stories that leads her to challenge the life’s story she believes has been penned for her, discovering that she, like moss, can grow despite her lack of roots.
