    A Memory of Violets Epub ☆ A MemoryeBook ä memory book, violets book, A Memory mobile, A Memory of Violets PDFThis review can also be found at Carole's Random Life 4 StarsEvery once in a while I am lucky enough to pick up a book that I just can't seem to get out of my mind This was one of those books I found myself thinking about this book constantly during the course of my day I told my daughter about it and anyone else who would listen I couldn't turn the story off in my head I just had to know what happened to Florrie and RosieMy favorite parts of the book were were set in the late 1800's in London and told from Florrie's perspective For some reason I really connected with her character As her story unfolded during the first half of the book I was completely mesmerized I could imagine her as a young child taking responsibility for her younger sister Rosie The love that Florrie felt for her sister was incredibly powerful for meThis story was also told from Tilly's point of view during the early 1900's Tilly goes to work as an
