    Tara Johnson has a gentleness in her writing that wraps around the heart and gives the impression of home And I think this is a great word to connect to the story.Cassie and Gabe come from such different backgrounds.Cassie Kendrick knows the pain of a heavy hand and rejection, and she s determined to now let the angry and unforgiving hands of her father take control of her destiny.Gabe Avery grew up as the son of poor immigrants in New York, but what they might have lacked in money, they did not in tenderness and love for one another Through grit and determination, and a bit of help from others, Gabe is able to work for renowned photographer Matthew Brady taking pictures of the war.A tentative but truthful friendship starts between them But war is not merely a scene to be captured on photograph Rather, it leaves deep scars and threatens to blacken the soul Heartache and grief seem like ...

    This is an amazing story of one woman s journey of courage, forgiveness and love In Cassie, Ms Johnson has given her readers a spunky heroine who disguises herself as a young soldier in the Union army as she runs away from an abusive home environment While trying to maintain her secret identity, Cassie befriends Gabe, a photographer who follows the army as he chronicles the war through images I love that Cassie and Gabe challenge the other to become a better person as they learn to shed the chains that bind them With hauntingly beautiful prose, Johnson paints a vivid picture of the misery and suffering that accompanies war, as the theme of hope triumph overs all The spiritual theme of forgiveness is woven seamlessly through the story I love it when an author can challenge me through a work of fiction to evaluate my life A couple of my favorite quotes Wherever dandelions bloom, hope remains Time is too precious to waste in bitterness It will steal your joy Time While t...

    Tara Johnson has done a wonderful job bringing the Civil War to life in Where Dandelions Bloom The battle scenes are very realistic, and you can tell she did in depth research to create the characters and plot I was especially interested in the hero and his work as a photographer My novella, Waiting For His Return, features a Special Artist war correspondent who followed the troops and sent drawings back for Harper...

    I d just like to start off by saying that the writing style was amazing I was pulled into the story right away, even though it wasn t fast moving, and at first I was sure that this would end up a 5 star read.Well, it obviously went downhill.I loved the characters of both Cassie and Gabe, and before Gabe found out that Turner was actually a girl, I really enjoyed the book.But then he found out her secret And he couldn t stop noticing her perfect curves Especially when she was in a dress it just graced her feminine curves And her full lips heart eyes What made it all worse was that after almost every one of their detailed kisses, he had to pull back before he lost himself.But it was quite obvious that he d already lost himself.Cassie and Gabe s ongoing argument about a woman s place seemed I don t know so drawn out She loved him She kissed him He said something that offended her and reminded her of her abusive father She avoided him a...

    Johnson gives readers a glimpse of a whole other side of the Civil War in Where Dandelions Bloom It s than just a girl playing the part of a soldier It s than a photographer capturing the images of war It s even than the story of two people coming together in unfortunate circumstances, and yet having to learn how to let their guards down and feel something This is a story of forgiveness It s a story of putting your past behind you, and moving forward It s a story of learning to lean on the Creator for everything that life throws at you It s a story that will touch your heart, and have you reaching for the tissues every now and then.I m not even sure where to begin How about my favorite characters Believe it or not, they happen to be secondary characters First is Cassie s grandmother She imparts such wisdom to Cassie, even during the difficult situations She reminds me of the kind of grandmother I want to be One who can effortlessly offer sound, Godly advice One who is comforting, and always ...

    3.5 stars She was trapped like a bird in a cage She could see freedom beyond the wire enclosure, but her wings could not beat strong enough to break the bars Cassie Kendrick was desperate Enough so to attempt the unthinkable Would it work Disguised as a young man, she successfully enlists in the Union army under the name of Thomas Turner, for Cassie would rather be listed as a casualty of war than be forced into an atrocious marriage by her drunken, abusive father Patience, Gabriel The Almighty has a hard time using those who keep running ahead o him Gabriel Avery s career takes a huge leap forward when he is commissioned by a renowned photographer to catalog war images from behind the front lines It s a chance of a lifetime and his determination to succeed matches his winsome personality Taking a liking to a shy young soldier, Thomas Turner, Gabe trusts Thomas w...
