3.5 stars. Sweet little story.

I liked Lainie a lot and enjoyed her POV throughout the story...she was easily my favorite character. I would have enjoyed having the entire story told by her. I had a harder time "getting" Tom and didn't feel like his character got a real closure with some of his fear issues in regards to animals. I had a hard time with the idea of war dogs being made from family pets, too... I know it happened and I don't honestly like being reminded of it. I honestly like workin

What a sweet story! Every time I read a Cara Putman book, I'm reminded again just how amazing her storytelling skills are. In Sandhill Dreams, I especially enjoyed the fact that the war dog trainer was frightened of dogs. It added a sense of tension to the storyline that kept me flipping pages long into the night. The wit and snappy comebacks sprinkled throughout the book had me laughing, which is always a good thing in my opinion.

I was not compensated for this review. I highl

Another good WWII story, with not-your-typical setting. Strong faith theme which I appreciate, and good characters. :)

Fun to read and educational

This book must have a lot of research to know about the days W W2 I love reading and understanding how hard times but also the fun in those days were filled with hard work but the innocent times of dancing and drug stores with soda fountains. I of course enjoyed the romance and complications it holds your interest till the end.

Held my attention

I bought this book after reading the first book in the series. I seldom buy the second book. Sandhill Dreams is worth the cost. I love a faith filled love story. I hope Cara Putnam will someday write a novel of two showing the couples after 25 or 30 years of marriage.

I am enjoying this series. This one especially. Adore the spunk in Lainie's character. I love the setting and that time period. Good job

I loved this story... it was my favorite of the Cornhusker Dreams series. I think I loved it most because I identified with the character of Lanie very strongly. I could see a lot of parallels in her life and my own. I enjoyed learning about some little known history about mid-America during WWII. I never even considered the possibility of prisoners of war from Germany being here in the United States, let alone working in our fields. I love how the author, Cara Putman puts in all kinds of little ...more
