Dandelions in the Wind by Monda Hodgson

 

 

Book Description

February 19, 2013
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?

My review:

Dandelions on the Wind was a short heart felt  story of togetherness and love. Based in time when men trudged off to war, wives and family were in fear of never seeing their loved ones again. This story brings forgiveness, hope, love, and much more. I found the story to be comforting as neighbors and family stick together as friends and as a community. I highly recommend this book for a long weekend read
