Dandelions On The Wind by Mona Hodgson Far from her Danish home and family, Maren makes the best of her life in war ravaged Missouri. After coming to America for a prearranged marriage, the bridegroom backs out, Maren finds refuge in the home of the Widow Bratenburg helping to raise the womanâ€™s granddaughter. When Civil War Veteran Rutherford shows up to reclaim his little girl and his place on the farm, Maren begins to look for a way back to Denmark and her family. But her heart might not let her leave.
This was a nice short story. The main characters each struggle with issues-some they have no control over, others are results of actions they took-that leave them feeling that love will not come their way. But, of course, a sweet summer story should have a happy ending and this one does. Itâ€™s definitely a great way to wind down the last days of summer vacation.
I received this book from Waterbrook Press free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
