Blowing on Dandelions by Miralee Ferrell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was given this book by David C Cook Via Net Galley and approved by the author.
I was so happy to get this book to read and review, my kind of read! I've never read a book written by Miralee Ferrell but after reading this one I am sure going to start reading her books past and present.
This story was set in the 1880's so was historical fiction. She has lost her husband, she is running a boarding house, she had 2 lovely daughters.
But, there has been trouble and pain within her relationship with her daughters which brings out that relationships no matter who with, can be very difficult and strained. It shows how we can hurt people without even trying.
I so loved this book, my praise to the author for a fantastic real life read. No matter what era, people are people.

Do Dandelion Wishes Actually Come True? Katherine Galloway knew this moment of calm wouldn’t last, blown away like the dandelion seeds she scattered as a girl. In 1880, three years after her husband’s death, she struggles to run an Oregon boardinghouse and raise two girls alone. Things don't get easier when her critical, domineering mother moves in. Katherine must make the situation work, but standing up for herself and her family while honoring her mother isn't easy. And with a daughter entering the teenage years, the pressure on Katherine becomes close to overwhelming. Then she crosses paths with Micah Jacobs, a widower who could reignite her heart, but she fears a relationship with him might send things over the edge. She must find the strength, wisdom, hope, and faith to remake her life, for everything is about to change.
