The Latest Wilted Dandelion Review


Ruth Holt

Just want to share: We have a published author who attends our church. Her name is Catherine Brakefield and she recently released this book, Wilted Dandelions. I enjoyed reading it and I might add it read like a good Hallmark movie with actual history added in; she and her husband Ed took a trip out west and followed Jonathan and Rachel's trail. Congratulations on your nomination, Cathy! I hope you win that award!

Catherine Brakefield has caught the heart and soul of the Civil War through the eyes of the South. She has diligently incorporated scripture in appropriate places to bring God's love and guidance in turbulent times. Historically accurate, the action kept me turning pages from the onset and I loved the depth of emotion she has woven into each character.
