“Dandelion Dust” by Faith Potts

Dandelion Dust by [Faith Potts]

Like a speck of dandelion dust riding the tides of a prairie wind, life is fleeting. Though I never realized just how fragile it was until that day . . .
Charity always had a dream. It was simple, really. Find a guy, fall in love, and get married.The day she met Ryder, Charity knew he was the man God had chosen for her. But she never expected their relationship to be tested and tried through the fires of a freak accident. Suddenly, her world is thrown into chaos, and the bleak, white walls and sterile smells of a city hospital fill every spare minute. And then there comes the dreaded news. It was likely Ryder would never make it out of the hospital bed.As her carefully laid plans for the future come crashing down around her and the sun seems to set on her dreams, can Charity still find hope in the dark of night?

Like a dandelion, life is beautiful. But treasure every moment. . . . for one day, the flower will be gone.
Author: Faith Potts
Rating:★★★★ (Four stars)
Bible Translation Used: N/A
Controversial: Mentions Starbucks. Uses the word d*rn, which is basically a cuss word. The hospital’s name is “St. Francis” (assuming it’s Catholic). Charity wears pants, and one place says Charity is picking on the fringe of her denim shorts (gives me the impression her shorts are very short). Characters play a game of cards. Character rolls her eyes. The phrase “Love Never Fails” is used, which, as my daddy says, only God’s love never fails.
Romance: Ryder holds Charity around the waist. He also kisses her cheek (at the end). *makes disgusted face*
Age: 16+?
We had just talked about ATV wrecks (and the law that you have to wear helmets to ride ATVs on public property) right before I read this book.
Knowing Miss Potts is a romance writer, I cautiously dug into this book. To my gratitude, the romance was not overdone, although there is like one place I probably wouldn’t dwell on too long. The beginning is a bit confusing (for me), but after that, I was able to follow the story line easier. Vivid descriptions and heart-wrenching emotions make readers feel like they’re right beside Charity and the Traven family. And the end……..well, that where most the romance flies in.
