Dandelions on the Wind

Tattered relationships and broken hearts, like a quilt, can be pieced together by God’s love.
When Maren Jensen took a job on Elsa Brantenberg’s St. Charles, Missouri farm, she never expected to call the place her home. As she grows to love Mrs. Brantenberg and her granddaughter, Gabi, Maren is transformed from a lonely mail-order bride-without-a-groom to a beloved member of the Brantenberg household. 
But when Gabi’s father, Rutherford “Wooly” Wainwright, returns to the farm unexpectedly, everything changes for Maren. Despite the failing eyesight that caused her suitor to reject her, she can see that Wooly desperately needs to reconnect with the family he abandoned when his grief sent him running toward the army—and into the Civil War. She also senses there could be something more between the widower and herself, if either can move beyond their past hurts.     
Comforted and counseled by the wisdom of the women in her beloved quilting circle, Maren begins to discover the cost such decisions demand of her heart. Are her choices in obedience to God, or is she running from His plan? Is it too late for love to be stitched into the fabric of her life?

I received a complimentary copy of Dandelions on the Wind through the Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Blogging for Books blogger program in exchange for an honest review.

This is a short, quick read that is good for passing time if you're looking for a light Christian fiction romance novel. I enjoyed it and wanted to read about the characters living happily ever after, bu it wasn't so amazing that I couldn't put it down. All in all, I give it three stars. I liked it, but for me it was missing something that could have made it great.
