The Dandelion Field by Kathryn Springer was such a sweet story. I knew from just reading the back of this book that I was going to love it and I wasn’t let down. I have never read anything by this author and I was so glad I received this one to read. I have found another author that I am going to add to my list of authors that I want to read other books by them. In this book Gin’s daughter Raine gets pregnant as a teenager and you get to follow along as they deal with the situation of an unplanned teenage pregnancy. I wasn’t a huge fan of Cody’s mom, Evie during most of the book but that is only because she see’s Raine as the only one who made a mistake and not her son as well. This was a well rounded story and one I am glad I got to review. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to read contemporary fiction books.
