I’m headed to the Yucatan with author Margot Berwin in her first novel, Hothouse Flower. The book is an ficticious journey for the reader and the writer. Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire is just plain fun.
So, grab a cool drink, this paperback and enjoy a fun summer read.
Margot Berwin creates an adventure and horticultural myth about 9 flowers from her dreams and intuition. We get to go with her on an adventure of exotic plants, romance, travel and spirit animals that takes us from New York to the Yucatan peninsula.
Costa Maya is a fishing village where “the villagers are of Mayan Indian descent with the usual smattering of expatriate alcoholics, criminals, and students slumming it on the beaches between semesters.”
I’m giving away a copy of Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire, written by Margot Berwin.
Email me by August 18, the drawing will be August 19. I’ll contact the winner for an address and send it to the publisher who will mail your copy of Hot House Flower.
To enter the random drawing for a free copy of this book, send me an email: Patsy64068@yahoo.com. Tell what flower you think is romantic. For example, I might write “I think the For-Get-Me-Not is a romantic flower.” One entry per person please.
My review is coming in October. But I want you to read this book now because it’s a great summer read.
