Maranatha Winningham has a place to go to think, to question God. It's a burned-out, abandoned plantation mansion sitting on a field of dandelions. Maranatha journeyed to this thinking place, raced to the middle of the field, plucked a single dandelion-gone-to-seed and blew across its head while she made her wish:
Jesus, you know my name. I want to live up to it. I want my heart to be a place where you want to come. But I'm afraid it's too dark there. What I've done. What's been done to me...I'm

Loved this book. The struggles that Maranatha has with God are so close to struggles that I have. Couldn't put it down!

I am through with Wishing On Dandelions and it is a very good follow-up of Watching the Tree Limbs by Mary DeMuth. She takes you inside the heart and mind of Maranatha from a nine year old child and up into her teenage years in the second book. You will love her and want to protect her, to keep her close and safe by your side. These are two very good reads! If you find them grab them for your own personal library because I think I could read them over again and still be moved! :)

I've always loved the south and reading Mary's books make me yearn to live somewhere warm and sunny where I can sit peacefully on my front porch swing, sipping sweet tea, surrounded by the overwhelming scent of magnolia. *happy sigh*
