The Dandelion Field Review Part 1!!!!

The Dandelion Field by Kathryn Springer

Book Description:
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 Opinion:
Interesting.  This is my first Kathryn Springer book, and I really enjoy her writing and I LOVE the length of her chapters!  Her style of back and forth between past and present is lovely.  Plus including different characters thoughts and views adds to the story and helps explain how everything came about!  The whole situation shows how the most grounded in Faith still have human moments and make mistakes.  I really feel for Gin as a character.  Struggling through life and trying to make things good for her daughter, but still running from everything that scares her.  And I immediately fell in love with Dan and the kind of man he is and Cody as he tries to grow into a good and responsible man himself!  I have a few issues with Cody's mom, but I have to also feel for her in this shocking situation.  Caught between a rock and a hard place will these characters slowly fall apart or will the lean on God to get them through?

Songs to come:

Songs etc. May be changed and/or added in the future. ~ASC
