This task was hard.
And because I'm clearly lacking books that feature women holding flowers, I had to stretch my interpretation of the task. And by stretch I mean, stopping just short of a post-modern expressive dance interpretation of what can be understood as woman holding a flower.
It would not have been a pretty sight.
So, count yourselves lucky to not have to see it.
Anyway, I have listed my covers above and there are a few more than five, just in case some should not work...
So, we have one actual cover with a woman holding flowers. Atwood to the rescue.
Then we have a girl holding flowers - Heidi. Still close enough, I guess.
Then we have a Vera of Ladies of Letters sporting a buttonhole flower.
The Deceased Miss Blackwell on top the grave is holding a rose.
Juliet has a flower-shaped earring.
A flower in a hat on the cover of A Talent for Murder, and finally...
Flowers in hair on the cover of Geisha, a Life.
I had to wade through more than 2500 covers on my combined shelves to even get the ones I listed. Seriously, this was a hard task.
