Dandelions on the Wind by Mona Hodgson ~ Please Rank My Mother's Review :)

Dandelions on the Wind (Quilted Hearts, #1)

Lucie's Review: A sweet tale of a courtship, with themes of restoration and healing.

When Maren Jensen's mail-order bride arrangement falls through due to her failing eyesight, she finds a home with a widow, Elsa Brantenberg, and her granddaughter, Gabi.
But when Gabi's father unexpectedly returns from the army, Maren and Rutherford might just find that God has a plan for healing their hearts.

I just loved the characters in this story, because they were strong and  likable each in their own way, and learned along the way.
Maren was a very inspiring heroine, in that even though she was losing her sight she was very insightful, she really had to trust and depend on God to guide her. Gabi, was a super cute little girl, and Rutherford was really sweet and took the time to get to know Maren genuinely. Elsa, was a very wise woman, and had a fun saying for practically everything :)

I really loved the character interaction, and how the relationships felt natural. And the story had a great theme, and storyline. I would definitely recommend this sweet novella.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
