The Dandelion Field


Although “The Dandelion Field” is a story built around some difficult situations, it is an extremely readable book. Kathryn Springer has a way with words that made me want to keep reading even when other things demanded my time and attention.

Thankfully, I have never had to deal closely with a teen pregnancy but everything about the one covered in this book rang true to life. The reactions of everyone involved seemed to be 100% realistic from Evie, the mom who discovered that her perfect role model son Cody and his “questionable” girlfriend Raine were going to have a baby to Gin, the single mother of the pregnant girl who overcame her instincts to run in order to support her daughter. Then there was Dan, best friend to Cody’s deceased dad who had always been available to support both Evie and Cody but found himself protective and attracted to Gin.

“The Dandelion Field” has its share of emotional ups and downs, conflict, humor, and a touch of romance. The plot was deftly written and not heavy handed. I really liked the way Dan and Gin tried to support the young couple without condemnation. There are several lessons to be learned within the pages of this book as well as some encouragement and spiritual guidance. I enjoyed “The Dandelion Field” and hope to read more books by this author in the future.

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.
