The Dandelion Field by Kathryn Springer - Review plus Kindle Giveaway by Litfuse

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

The Dandelion Field by Kathryn Springer
ISBN: 9780310339632
Trade Paperback

Synopsis: 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.

My review: This is the first book I have read by this author and I enjoyed it. I liked that this author made these characters and situation so real. There is a bit of romance in this book but it is not overwhelming. It fits nicely with the story line. It was nice to see Dan and Gin help the teens through their troubles so they are not alone in dealing with the issues. The author did such a good job of telling the story of a touchy subject. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a touching story. It is a very emotional book. Don't forget to check out the discussion questions at the end of the book they are pretty good. I will be looking for more books by this author.
