From the inside cover of the new book:

“After my first visit to Mrs. DeHaven’s flower shop in 1954, I was fascinate with the ambiance, the history, and the beauty of the shop. Throught the years, I became acquainted with their friendly staff and in particular, Gwenn Whisenhunt, a long-time employee.

I soon developed the habit of driving by the shop to admire the shop’s wonderful and creative sindow displays. I had also heard of their historic archives and, upon writing a previous book that required photos of the 1920s, I called Gwenn for assistance. She quickly produced what I was needing and the next day I thought, ‘why not write a book about Mrs. DeHaven’s?’ I called Gwenn and said, ‘We are going to write a book!'”
