I assume you're referring to "Mrs. Flowers: A Moment of Friendship." If so, this is a children's book that is taken from Maya Angelou's autobiographical book "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings."
The story of Mrs. Flowers is set in Sparks, Arkansas in the 1930s. Marguerite (Maya Angelou's birth name) has been living in St. Louis. But while there, she was raped by a friend of her mother. She is, of course, deeply traumatized by the incident.
Now living is Sparks, she is still having a hard time coping. At that point, she meets Mrs. Flowers, who acts as something of a mentor for her and helps draw her out of her shell.
