Bookpage says:  "In a potent medium of quirky wit, incisive reporting and occasionally breathtaking prose, Stewart grows her strange and riveting tale…Flower Confidential is a page-turner.  I read avidly to its end, madly curious to know if, after all she had witnessed, Stewart’s floral romanticism remained.  In the book’s ironically captivating epilogue, I found out.  But I’m not telling."

Also, the Chicago Tribune calls Flower Confidential "a fascinating examination of the cut-flower industry."  Read the article here.  Oh, and just one clarification from that story:  the actual number of cut flowers that we purchase in the United States every year is actually closer to 4 billion, not 2.9 billion.   (We import 2.9 billion stems a year.)
