Do Dandelion Wishes Actually Come True?

Katherine must make the situation work, but standing up for herself and her family while honoring her mother isn't easy. And with a daughter entering the teenage years, the pressure on Katherine becomes close to overwhelming. Then she crosses paths with Micah Jacobs, a widower who could reignite her heart, but she fears a relationship with him might send things over the edge. She must find the strength, wisdom, hope, and faith to remake her life, for everything is about to change.

Family Conflict mixed with Romance
4 stars By Iola, Dec 20 2013
Katherine Galloway is the widowed mother of two daughters living in Baker City, Oregon, in 1880. She is managing to make ends meet running a local boarding house when her life is made more complicated as her demanding mother moves in, two new boarders arrive, and she offers rooms to the local blacksmith and his son after the livery burns to the ground. Katherine is attracted to the handsome widowed blacksmith, but even that is complicated: her mother dislikes him, and her daughter appears to be interested in his son. 

A big part of the novel was the conflict between Katherine and her mother, Frances, and between Frances and one of the boarders, Wilma Roberts. While this theme of dysfunctional relationships and misunderstandings was central to the novel, I found the character of Frances to be too abrasive, and I didn't enjoy the scenes she featured in. (That's funny, because I don't like novels with no conflict-perhaps the conflict in Wishing on Dandelions was a bit close to home). 

This is the first book in the Love Blooms in Oregon series, and while I found reading about the relationship between Katherine and her mother difficult, the writing, plot and characters were all strong, and the Christian element was strong without being preachy. I'm interested in reading the next book in the series, Wishing on Buttercups (to be published in February 2014).
