Dandelion Dust review and giveaway

About the book: 
Like a speck of dandelion dust riding the tides of a prairie wind, life is fleeting. Though I never realized just how fragile it was until that day . . .

Charity always had a dream. It was simple, really. Find a guy, fall in love, and get married.
The day she met Ryder, Charity knew he was the man God had chosen for her. But she never expected their relationship to be tested and tried through the fires of a freak accident. Suddenly, her world is thrown into chaos, and the bleak, white walls and sterile smells of a city hospital fill every spare minute. And then there comes the dreaded news. It was likely Ryder would never make it out of the hospital bed.
As her carefully laid plans for the future come crashing down around her and the sun seems to set on her dreams, can Charity still find hope in the dark of night?

Like a dandelion, life is beautiful. But treasure every moment. . . for one day, the flower will be gone.




My Review:

I sat down to read this and ended up spending three hours reading it strait though. 
I was unsure about this book at first, I mean, I’m not really into books focused on romance (Which is what I thought this was). But that’s not what the book was. Dandelion Dust is a sweet, endearing book about love and growth. One of the best things about this book is that even though it does focus on the couple, it is more about learning to have true, Christ like love then just service love. 
I loved the main girl. And that ending. It was so sweet. 
The writing was not the best, but it was still very good. I really look forward to seeing how this author improves in future.

I only had a few (very minor) things I disliked. 
1. The priest being made an annoying character. I understand there are bad persist out there, but this really didn’t seem to have a point why he was bad. 

2. Spoiler! All the characters had nice, picture perfect endings. All of them had guys or girls they were interested in. It came across as a bit to perfect for me. End Spoiler

Overall, this was a very sweet book. 

Note: most of this book takes place in a hospital, so I would not recommend this to anyone who has an aversion to medical stuff.

*I had the honor of being an advance reader for this book. I was given a copy in exchange for my honest review.

  1. It sounds like a great book! Christian romances can often get on my nerves, but it sounds like Dandelion Dust will be an exceptional, unique, and purely beautiful addition to the genre. I enjoyed this lovely review, Mikayla :) To the giveaway I go!

  5. Oh, I really hope I get to read this book! I had a question, though. I'm an international reader, but, if I win, I have someone in the States I can send it to. Am I still allowed to enter, and will my entries be accepted?
