The following review was originally published at Merikthorne Library, on February 20th, 2018.
For one small moment, Charity's life was perfect -- until a fraction of a second changed everything.
When Faith announced the release of her debut novella, I was ecstatic. A modern, Christian romance featuring two young adults? With a coffee shop or two, and a dash of four-wheeling thrown in? SO MUCH YES. So when the opportunity arose to review Dandelion Dust, I jumped at the chance... and I was not in the least disappointed. 💕
Charity Grace's life is perfect. Four years ago, a mission trip to Guatemala revealed a newfound friend in Hannah Traven, an Oklahoma native. Now, Charity's off to college... and she and Hannah's older brother are dating, completely head-over-heels for one another.
...And then the phone call comes, and Charity's world begins to crumble. For, "like a speck of dandelion dust riding the tides of a prairie wind, life is fleeting"... and her boyfriend's life hangs in the balance.
FRENS. This book... *sighs* I laughed, I cried, I adored it.
Each character was so human, so flawlessly crafted that one could easily believe them to be a friend or family member.
AND THE ROMANCE. *flails* Gaaah, the romance! It. Was. Adorable. Ryder and Charity were so sweet and natural together! I'd readily describe it as one of the most realistic inspirational romances I've ever read.
My, my. The plot, the themes, the writing... it was all woven together so beautifully. Everything about this book was perfect. 💗
For a truly inspiring tale of God's unwavering love, I whole-heartedly recommend Dandelion Dust!
You may want to know: Although one character is injured in a quad accident, the story does not dwell on the specifics of the incident itself (a.k.a. there's no gore). This book does carry a bit of romance, but I'd readily deem it void of anything questionable. 🙂
