This was another Karen Kingsbury book that I could not put down. She is a great writer that really writes about things that really make you stop and think. If we would only turn over our problems over to God and let him handle them instead of trying to do it ourselves we would be so much better off.
I would highly recommend this book.

Karen Kingsbury, at her best. All her books are good, and this is no exception. Someone told me this is to be made into a movie, I hope that it's true.

Christian fiction at it's best. Karen Kingsbury always touches a place in my heart. A biological father wants his adoptive son back. Adoptive Mom is terrified. Adoptive Dad plans an escape. A surprise ending!

Like Dandelion Dust was a wonderful book. It is a story based on what parents would be willing to do for their children. I found it quite touching - a 2 tissue read.

I couldn't put this book down. I wanted to so badly to know how it ended! I did end up skipping some of the middle of the book because I just really wanted to know the end! Definitely a tear-jerker.

This is an excellent book by Karen Kingsbury- story about a little boy who is adopted and a struggle between adoptive parents and biological parents who have been out of his life for his first few years of life. A sweet story pulled knitted together wonderfully by a wonderful author!

This is the first book i ever read by Karen Kingsbury. I was in love with it ever from the start! Someone from my church recommended Karen to me and I wasn't sure because the person who recommended it was a little older than me so I didn't know if I would like her or not. But I was absolutely in love!! It definetly keeps you involved in the book

This book had an interesting premise. I found myself siding with both "mothers" in the book.

Excellent book which leaves you with many questions. Loved the little boy who was adopted by a couple, and then paternal mother and father try to get him back. A mothers love, what do you do? Gods will be done? What God wants for this little boy, will it happen regardless of what the couple does? Did God use this to bring this family to know Him? You will have many questions after reading this.

Like most of her books, it is a nice light read that I can relate to. I enjoyed this book especially because we just dealt with a situation that could have been very similar. The living out of the Christian faith in such a realistic was is refreshing.

I truly enjoyed this book. I have heard that it will be made into a movie and I certainly hope this is true. The story follows a family that adopted an infant and what happens when his birth father gets out of prison and found out about the birth mother fraudulently signing his name to the adoption papers. This is another excellent book from Ms. Kingsbury. Keep the tissues handy!!

I really liked this book. I have two adopted children. It keeps you on the edge of your seat. It brings awareness to I hope people who think that adopted parents should have zero rights and that some how adopted parents can not possible love their child as much as a biological parent. I beg to differ. Adopted parents choose beyond any doubt to be parents and jump through amazing hoops to get there. Adopted parents love their kids so much maybe more than someone who has casual sex and decides to parent a child who wasn't planned or wanted. Choose to adopt and particpate on an amaxing journey of love and sacrifice. Great book

Karen Kingsbury is my newest favorite writer. Each book I've read grabs you right in your heart, where you live. God wins out in all, but seeing basic life struggles met, gave me hope.

Dandelion Dust has been my favorite along with A Time to Dance and A Time to Embrace -- Don't forget Tuesday Morning and Beyond Tuesday Morning.

Fast read - didn't want to put it down. Reminds us that we need to be like little children, talk to God, trust that he is always with us, and he will answer our prayers.

This was such a wonderful heart tugging tale. I loved it. It wasn't too preachy, which sometimes Christian authors are, and that was nice. A very touching story.

Typical Karen Kingsbury book, which means you need a box of tissue handy while reading it. The people in this book are believable, and it makes you wonder what you would do in this situation. Good Christian message!
