Book Review ~ Blowing on Dandelions by Miralee Ferrell ~ 9/25/15



  Do Dandelion Wishes Actually Come True?  

Katherine Galloway knew this moment of calm wouldn’t last, blown away like the dandelion seeds she scattered as a girl. In 1880, three years after her husband’s death, she struggles to run an Oregon boardinghouse and raise two girls alone. Things don't get easier when her critical, domineering mother moves in. Katherine must make the situation work, but standing up for herself and her family while honoring her mother isn't easy. And with a daughter entering the teenage years, the pressure on Katherine becomes close to overwhelming. T

hen she crosses paths with Micah Jacobs, a widower who could reignite her heart, but she fears a relationship with him might send things over the edge. She must find the strength, wisdom, hope, and faith to remake her life, for everything is about to change.    
My Thoughts:

Wow!  What a book!  I must say that I would give this book a 5/5.  I read the entire book in one evening and didn't once want to put it down!

I was drawn into the lives of the characters.  Katherine had two daughters, a teen and one younger, just like I do.  I have to say that some of her struggles as a mother were very understandable.

What she had that I do NOT have is a very critical mother.  There were times that I wanted to shout out in Katherine's defense.  Isn't that silly?  lol

The love story between Micah and Katherine was sweet but the resounding relationship struggles to me were mother/daughter which resolved rather nicely with each promising to "try" to do better.  After all, all we can do is try to change when we realize that we are doing wrong.

I thoroughly enjoyed this first book of the series and have the second book on my shelf waiting to be devoured!

On to the Next Book!
