The Dandelion Field ~ Review

About the book:
This handsome firefighter makes a living coming to the rescue, but Gin doesn't need a man to fight her battles.

After Raine's dad walked out, Ginevieve Lightly never lived in one place too long, a rambling lifestyle that defined her daughter's youth. When their car dies in Banister Falls, Wisconsin, Gin promises Raine they can stay until she finishes her senior year of high school. Gin will do anything to make sure her daughter has a bright future . . . a future that's compromised when Raine reveals she's pregnant.

Dan Moretti has only ever called Banister Falls home. After losing his best friend in a tragic accident, Dan devoted himself to responding to fires, rescuing the helpless, and guiding Cody Bennett, his best friend's son, through life. With Cody being the epitome of the good kid, it was an easy job. Until he says four little words: "The baby is mine."

Knowing gossip of Raine's pregnancy will erupt sooner or later in the small town, Gin's reflex is to grab the suitcase and escape to a new city, a new life. But with each passing day, Gin's feet stay rooted in Banister Falls, and she falls a little more for this local firefighter who shows her not all men abandon women at the first sign of smoke.

As Gin and Dan do the best they can to guide the two teenagers through their early entry into adulthood, they discover together that romance can bloom in the rockiest of situations. And God can turn the pieces of a broken past into a beautiful new beginning.

My Thoughts:


The Dandelion Field is a story that many have experienced first hand, and Kathryn Springer did an amazing job telling it!                        

Cody and Raine are typical teens, loving life,  attending church,  and planning for their future.  One day they meet one another and the rest is history as they say! They fell hard and fast for one another!

Raine's Mom, Gin is an independent woman who doesn't really like to stay put in one town very long. She doesn't have a lot of faith when it comes to men and relationships. So when she finds out that Raine is pregnant she is not happy at all!

I remember when a couple in the church I was attending, got pregnant and they had to leave the church due to the fact that the guy was in a leadership position. I remember being so upset but  I could understand why as I got older.

The author does such a wonderful job of sharing each persons struggles! Gin struggles not only with how all of this will affect Raine's future, but it's making her look right into her own issues she has with relationships and how she deals with them. Will she be able to give into the feelings that continue to arise for Dan, or will she pack up and leave again? Dan is my favorite person in this storyline! He is the ever faithful friend who happens to be a good looking Fireman, who loves to care for and rescue those who might need his help! In his eyes, Gin needs to be rescued, and he is just the man for the job!

I love how this story reveals the Grace of God in such a powerful way! Not only that, but also how if
we are willing to look within ourselves and see what needs to be fixed or changed and we allow God to do what HE wishes,  oh my, it is soo powerful!!

 Thank you LitFuse for allowing me this complimentary book in exchange for my honest opinion! I say it is a DEFINITE 5 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥'s!!!
