Do Dandelion Wishes Actually Come True?

That's the question of the day in this wonderful novel by Miralee Ferrell.

Ladies, has your relationship with your mother ever gotten to the point where it was strained in a way where you saw no way out but a miracle? If so, then Blowing on Dandelions might be just the book for you.

Miralee Ferrell has brought the complications of the mother-daughter relationship, placed it into the 1880s, and done wonders with it! Blowing on Dandelions is relatable, authentic, inspiring, and compelling.

Relatable, realistic, and inspiring, Blowing on Dandelions - the first in a series of three set in the year 1880 in Baker City, Oregon - has a ring of authenticity to it that is refreshing, and a storyline that is compelling. Mrs. Ferrell takes the mother-daughter relationship and the complications of single parenthood and created a circle of people who, with a little faith, see that which they never thought possible!

Katherine cannot fathom her relationship with her mother ever changing for the better. Stubborn and fickle, Francis has not allowed anyone - especially her daughter, Katherine - to fully touch her heart, though deep down she knows that she isn't the easiest person to get along with.

Then there's Micah... when he meets Katherine, both of them having lost a spouse and left with children - he fights against everything that he wants by denying it. His anger with God over the loss of his wife has left him bereft of any real relationships, and might just keep him from allowing God to help him to heal and begin again.

Take a trip to your local bookstore and find out what unfolds and whether or not dandelion wishes really do come true...
