"It's a Cherokee Rose. The story is that when American soldiers were moving Indians off their land on the Trail of Tears, the Cherokee mothers were grieving and crying so much 'cause they were losing their little ones along the way from exposure and disease and starvation. A lot of them just disappeared. So the elders, they said a prayer; asked for a sign to uplift the mothers' spirits, give them strength and hope. The next day this rose started to grow where the mothers' tears fell. I'm not fool enough to think there's any flowers blooming for my brother. But I believe this one bloomed for your little girl."

About the Author

Among the most popular authors in recent American history, Anne Rice is best known for The Vampire Chronicles, a gothic fiction series revolving around the vampire Lestat. Interview with the Vampire, the opening book in the series, appeared in 1976, and drew not just readers but also critical acclaim. The Chicago Tribune noted that Rice "penetrates directly to the true fascination of the myth — the education of the vampire." Rice has also written erotica under various pen names and Christian fiction.
