Victoria Jones kennt von Geburt an nur Waisenhäuser und Pflegefamilien. Wie ein Gegenstand wurde sie von einer Bleibe zur nächsten weitergereicht. Schon als Kind hat sie sich deshalb zu einer wortkargen, menschenscheuen Kratzbürste entwickelt. Einzig für Blumen interessiert sie sich, und für deren Sprache, denn die hat sie von Elizabeth gelernt, dem einzigen Menschen, von dem sie je Liebe erfahren hat. Mit achtzehn Jahren ist Victoria obdachlos und ganz auf sich allein gestellt – bis sie einen Job in einem kleinen Blumenladen findet. Auf dem Markt der Blumenhändler lernt sie schließlich einen jungen Mann kennen. Erstaunt stellt sie fest, dass Grant ebenfalls die Sprache der Blumen versteht. Gegen ihren Willen keimt in Victoria nach langer Zeit wieder Hoffnung: auf Liebe, auf eine Familie, auf ein Zuhause ... Doch ihre Vergangenheit, ihre schmerzvollen Erinnerungen an Elizabeth holen sie immer wieder ein. Kann es Grant gelingen, sie trotzdem zu lieben – so unberechenbar, so verstockt, so verletzlich, wie sie ist?
