This week’s review is of LIKE DANDELION DUST, by one of the world’s best loved inspirational novelists, Karen Kingsbury. If you’ve enjoyed any of her other novels, you will not be disappointed. LIKE DANDELION DUST receives my highest rating.
Now, about the book:
Like any other four-year-old boy, Joey loved dinosaurs, especially the T-Rex. Joey was handsome, intelligent and quite charming. He even shared his lunch with the kids that had none. His preschool teacher said it best, “Joey is the kindest, most well-adjusted four-year-old I’ve taught in a long time.”
Molly had a wonderful home, money in the bank, and Jack was the best husband ever. So when they picked up Joey from the adoption agency, her life was complete. Joey was the best son any mother could ever cherish. Her life was perfect.
Wendy’s life hadn’t worked out the way she dreamed it would back when she was a teenager. Rip Porter had been her high school sweetheart. But, after she got married, she learned that Rip was no knight in shining armor. He was a brutal thug that beat her often and went to prison for it.
Rip paid his debt to society, and it was time for Wendy to pick him up from the prison. There had been other men in her bed during those five long years, but no one else in her heart. She couldn’t help it. She still loved him. But she never told him that when he went to prison, she was already pregnant.
What would Rip do when he found out that Wendy had given their son up for adoption? To tell you any more would spoil the book. You’ll have to buy a copy to find out.
