It’s two a.m. on a quiet night at the Sisters of Mercy Hospital in Del Rio, Texas. But when the front doors whoosh open, the nurse in charge looks up and her blood runs cold. A young, pregnant woman in a bloody and torn flowered dress hobbles into the emergency room and collapses on the floor. “H-help me .?.?.” she whispers through split, puffy lips. “Please help my babies.”
It’s the worst case of abuse that Detective Dan Baxter has ever seen. The only bright spot in this mysterious murder is that the woman’s babies-each given a flower name in honor of the dress their mother wore that night-managed to survive. Lily, Violet, and Rose thrive in spite of the violence that took their mama in the early morning hours after their birth. Although the case appears to be unsolvable, Detective Baxter refuses to let it go. As the girls, known in the press as the Texas Flower Girls, are adopted by three separate families and go on to live their lives, Baxter keeps the cold case in his sights. Who kidnapped and tortured this woman, and why?
The Flower Girls is an uplifting story of faith, perseverance, and the ultimate intertwining of four individual lives, brought together out of tragedy. Like the flowers the triplets are named for, these young women grow and bloom, proving faith provides strength in the most trying circumstances.
