Book Review: The Dandelion Field by Kathryn Springer #50BookPledge

About the book: 

This handsome firefighter makes a living coming to the rescue, but Gin doesn't need a man to fight her battles.

After Raine's dad walked out, Ginevieve Lightly never lived in one place too long, a rambling lifestyle that defined her daughter's youth. When their car dies in Banister Falls, Wisconsin, Gin promises Raine they can stay until she finishes her senior year of high school. Gin will do anything to make sure her daughter has a bright future . . . a future that's compromised when Raine reveals she's pregnant.

Dan Moretti has only ever called Banister Falls home. After losing his best friend in a tragic accident, Dan devoted himself to responding to fires, rescuing the helpless, and guiding Cody Bennett, his best friend's son, through life. With Cody being the epitome of the good kid, it was an easy job. Until he says four little words: "The baby is mine."

Knowing gossip of Raine's pregnancy will erupt sooner or later in the small town, Gin's reflex is to grab the suitcase and escape to a new city, a new life. But with each passing day, Gin's feet stay rooted in Banister Falls, and she falls a little more for this local firefighter who shows her not all men abandon women at the first sign of smoke.

As Gin and Dan do the best they can to guide the two teenagers through their early entry into adulthood, they discover together that romance can bloom in the rockiest of situations. And God can turn the pieces of a broken past into a beautiful new beginning.

The Dandelion Field is a book that tells the readers about many topics that many of us try to ignore in our life.  Life is not easy and it definitely is not easy for the characters in this book.  They go through many hard issues and the book touches upon these topics and remains to be entertaining from start to finish.  I loved the book from start to finish and the emotional roller coaster within it.

We seem to live in a society that many choose not to take responsibility for their actions and I loved the fact that the teens in this story took responsibility.  However, even the adults in the book were responsible which is great.  No offense to anyone I know, but I have crossed paths with many adults who would benefits from role models in this book.  Its is a great reminder that it is never too late to be better then what we currently are.
