About the book:
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 Thoughts:
The story of Ginevieve Lightly and Dan Moretti along with Raine and Cody is absolutely captivating!  Springer tackled some very hard issues in The Dandelion Field and I was engrossed in the story beginning with the very first few pages.
Springer's cast of characters come to life and leap off the page and were so real and genuine...any of them could be you or me.  As a reader, I found myself thinking through each character's individual story and wondering, "What if that were me"?  I haven't been as "involved" in a book like I was in this one in a long time.  But Springer takes the reader to that place through an emotionally riveting story.  The transformation in Ginevieve is a delight and joy to see as her story progresses through her struggles with trust and faith.  This one now has a place on my "keeper shelf"!
