Dandelions on the Wind, The Quilted Hearts Series #1 : Book Review

Dandelions on the Wind, The Quilted Hearts Series #1
If you like to read a good read, I suggest you read this book. Dandelions on the Wind by Mona Hodgson, is the first novella in the Quilted Heart series, and you won’t be able to put it down. The book is about a mail order bride , Maren Jenson, who has come to America from Denmark. But the man she is supposed to marry, leaves her when he finds out about Maren’s ailment. She finds a home with Ms. Brantenberg , and her young granddaughter, Gabi.
But the winds change when Gabi’s father shows up. Maren finds herself falling in love with him, and his daughter Gabi. But the strain between “Wooly” and Ms. Brantenberg is strong and the tension is high. One great lesson this book shares is that “Grace cannot be earned, only given”.
I found this book to be a great read. The only downside is that it’s short. Also there needed to be more about the characters themselves to help the reader feel as if they knew them. The lessons on grace and forgiveness in this book is nice and refreshing.  Also the last few chapters of the book don’t talk much about Maren’s ailment. Overall this little novella was an inspiring book, with lessons on grace and forgiveness throughout the book.
