"Flowers for a Girl is at once a very personal tale of trauma and transformation and a transmission unto itself. I truly think this is the new wave of herbal writing and knowledge. Amanda's realness, acuity, and the beauty and forgiveness embedded within her writing
is more than moving-- it is transformational.
I see this book at a treasured tome of medicine for many, many women."

"As a clinical herbalist who works with many clients who have experienced sexual trauma, I have found this book indispensable to my practice.
Amanda clearly knows her plants and has a special relationship with them and this shines through in her writing. I highly recommend this book to anyone who works with clients who are dealing with trauma and are looking for gentle healing remedies.
