Do Dandelion Wishes Actually Come True? Katherine Galloway knew this moment of calm wouldn’t last, blown away like the dandelion seeds she scattered as a girl. In 1880, three years after her husband’s death, she struggles to run an Oregon boardinghouse and raise two girls alone. Things don't get easier when her critical, domineering mother moves in. Katherine must make the situation work, but standing up for herself and her family while honoring her mother isn't easy. And with a daughter entering the teenage years, the pressure on Katherine becomes close to overwhelming. Then she crosses paths with Micah Jacobs, a widower who could reignite her heart, but she fears a relationship with him might send things over the edge. She must find the strength, wisdom, hope, and faith to remake her life, for everything is about to change.
Ferrell (The Other Daughter) examines the many facets of love and relationships in this sweetly moving historical romance, the first in her Love Blossoms in Oregon series. Katherine Galloway, a widowed single mother of two girls, must make her way as the proprietor of a bed and breakfast in Baker City, a small Oregon mining town. Her quiet life is disrupted by the arrival of her cantankerous mother, with whom she has a contentious relationship, as well as a myriad of boarding house guests including an attractive new arrival to the town and his teenage son. Katherine's interactions with her mother, her daughter, the church quilting club, and the new man in town are explored in a wonderfully realistic fashion. But while the lovingly detailed cast clearly lives their faith, the narrative offers too much oversimplified religion. A series of contrived events move toward a rushed yet ultimately emotionally satisfying end.

Blowing on Dandelions
Miralee has a wonderful way of writing a spell binding story intertwined with several other character stories. Her books are very difficult to put down.
