What an awesome book! Just before it ended, my heart was pounding and I was feeling afraid of what might happen. I don't want to spoil it for you, so I will not explain that comment. This was a very emotional story - lots of tears, and wonder at how things would play out. As always, Karen Kingsbury delivered a top notch tale. I don't know where she gets her marvelous ideas. This is adventurous, emotional, sweet, and powerful. You will really be able to become one with the characters. And what a blessing to see how God works "all things for good" in this story. I hope you will buy this book - you will not be sorry.
I highly recommend it. Good for adults and teens.

Review 2 for Like Dandelion Dust - eBook
Date:June 30, 2011
My first e-book and I love the fast and easy way to purchase a book. As always Karen Kingsbury's book are excellent.
What an amazing piece of work! Excellent incites into the world of adoption from each party's stand point. Great exposure of the need for biblical principles to be in place in our social services departments. Deals with the real fears and great joys of the adoptive parents and the great loss the birth mother feels when loving the child enough to place him/her into a healthy family. Also brings out clearly the trauma children face when their world is shaken.
I bought the book for my daughter in law who LOVES Karen Kingsbury's books. She said this one was very good as well and she wants to see the movie that's coming out by the same name. I was only surprised by the size/ print type of the book. The book itself and the print is much smaller than Kingsbury's other books - because it is a mass market edition, I suppose.
I am amazed at what a couple will go through to save a child from being taken away from them...and a mother's sacrifice to save the same child from harm...Please read it. You won't want to put it down....
