Hodgson, Mona. Dandelions on the Wind. Colorado Springs, CO: Waterbrook Press. 2013.
Maren Jenson, originally from Denmark, calls Mrs. Brantenberg’s Missouri farm her home now. After being jilted as a mail-order-bride, Maren has found purpose in caring for young Gabi, even with her now failing eye-sight. When Gabi’s father, Wooley, returns back from the Civil War, things begin to change…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Though only a novella, I found this book to read as a full-length novel. The title intrigued me but the meaning soon became apparent. I especially liked the Christian themes throughout the book in times of trial and thankfulness. I found this be a heart-warming, inspirational tale by an author I will seek to read yet again. (I am glad this is the first book of a trilogy.)
RATING: 4 (out of 5) pennies
