From the author of Wabi-Sabi, on the intersection of beauty and design.
Beautiful blossoms flourish in the front of the Florer a Roma-- but dangerous plans are blooming in the back room. Harry, an un-employed American newspaper reporter, comes to Mexico to have a good time. He wants to see the sights, play golf, go fishing, and hit the beach. His first night in Mexico City he has dinner with Rosa, a blue-eyed blonde Mexican girl, and he stumbles on a body in the back of the restaurant. From then on, he and Rosa are forced to fight for their lives, caught in the middle of a complex Cold War conspiracy to sabotage and eventually to take over Pemex, the government oil monopoly. Within days of arriving Harry has three job offers, including an offer from Rosa's boss at the Florer a Roma, and another for a part time job with United Press. When he visits the back room of the flower shop he discovers that the conspiracy goes well beyond the Pemex takeover and includes assassination and catastrophic global disorder.
What if you are nineteen, agonizingly shy, and need to get a job? Lacking a lighthouse in New Mexico, Gwendolyn Springfield applies for a job at the local flower shop and gets it. She tries to hide from the world, but the world, alas, comes to her. Weddings, funerals, gatherings large and small; all of them parade through her door-and into her life. She sees-and hears-it all. Meet Marjorie Wilkes, the Boss. She doesn't understand the "invisible cage" Gwen constantly finds herself in. Then there's Mrs. Hardcouer, the town troublemaker. All the townsfolk unload on Gwen, but to whom does she confide? The Flower Shop unfolds like a Willa Cather Novel: slow, with the sweep of insight and understanding gathered up at the end. Through others, Gwen comes to know herself. This novel is not recommended for girls under fifteen.
