New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury - the queen of inspirational fiction (Time) - is acclaimed for her poignant, uplifting novels.

In this moving story, Jack and Molly Campbell are enjoying a wonderful life with Joey, their four-year-old adopted son. But their world is soon shattered when they learn Joey's biological father is out of prison and wants to begin a new life with his son. And when a judge orders them to surrender Joey, the Campbells desperately consider taking their son and disappearing - just like dandelion dust.

    " Wow. It's by Karen Kingsbury, need I say more? Another wonderful read that I couldn't put down. I marvel at her writing, and get lost in her characters and their dramas. I wanna be her when I grow up! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherry Moran | 12/20/2013

    " I'm reading, but it's not quite as attention grabbing as the other book I'm working on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shellie | 12/2/2013

    " I really liked this book because I am an adoptive parent as well and my children are all so precious to me. This book is a good and fast read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 12/1/2013

    " So good! Definitely need a box of Kleenex when you read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 11/28/2013

    " First Karen Kingsbury book I've read apparently. Wasn't disappointed in the least! Absolutely loved it! Looking forward to seeing the movie at the theater this friday. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 11/27/2013

    " a3.5. read this because it is about adoption and since i was adopted curious to find out what this story was about. also saw the movie version. {mira sorvino was especially good as Wendy the biological mother} "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 10/18/2013

    " a good story, easy read.....good ending "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lovescaleb | 6/5/2013

    " A tearjerker. Loved the story yet the writing wasn't what I wanted it to be. I like books that show me the story not just tell me. But I may try another inspirational book by Karen Kingsbury later on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim♥ | 5/28/2013

    " I'd already heard what this book was about, so I basically just skimmed through it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 3/4/2013

    " This was my first Karen Kingsbury novel and I loved it! The story line was heart wrenching, but I was hooked early in the book. This was one I spent a day in my pajamas reading! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy | 2/13/2013

    " A sweet story but a bit too sweet and predictable. I felt like I'd been to Sunday School. Characters were not well developed - only knew them on the surface. I finished it because it was a Book Club selection but I admit I skimmed a lot from lack of real interest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Desiree | 8/23/2012

    " have a tissue. A great read. Couldn't put down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 6/15/2012

    " I love Karen Kingsbury! This book really pulled at my heartstrings. What a blessing it is to share our life with God's precious gift of a child! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 6/2/2012

    " This book was a very good read!! I will never look at a field of dandelions the same!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula | 5/19/2012

    " The movie did not even get close to the quality of the book!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Franks | 3/31/2012

    " A good story, but predictable. I liked the setting since I lived in South Florida. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathryn | 3/9/2012

    " Weakest KK novel I've read thus far...not sure why it's the first to be made into a movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Garris | 2/14/2012

    " Interesting read about an adoption that goes bad. Kind of predictable. This is a Christian author so the book is heavy on scripture. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaia | 1/17/2012

    " Another quick read and a heart wrenching scenario so if you're a crier, you've been warned. It did keep me guessing a bit on how the situation would be resolved but there's no huge twist or anything in the book. A sweet story and if you like Karen Kingsbury's style, you'll probably like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 12/18/2011

    " I don't go for a lot of religion and faith in the books I read but the story was powerful enough to help me ignore the strong religious messages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jocelyn | 10/31/2011

    " Such a GREAT book! A MUST read! I haven't cried that much in a book in a long time!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 10/13/2011

    " I picked this book up at a church rummage sale-based by reading the cover--thoroughly enjoyed it. Couldn't put it down! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 10/9/2011

    " Couldn't put the book down. Brought tears to my eyes at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tia | 9/26/2011

    " Like Dandelion Dust was a slightly different than other Kingsbury books. It started out with many unbelievers, who, through circumstances, come to know the Lord with a strong and real faith. The underlying theme of 'a child's faith' was the best part of this book, in my opinion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessie | 9/6/2011

    " The book read smoothly and quickly, but the interaction between the two sisters was cheezy and ridiculous, and the ending was obvious. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carrie | 9/4/2011

    " It was so slow moving. I didn't finish it. It couldn't keep my attention.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Babs | 8/31/2011

    " What an awesome story! I didnt think I would like how it ended but it was soooo wonderful!!! I am now a fan of Karen Kingsbury. This was my very first book of hers! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 7/29/2011

    " ...sweet story...somewhat predictable...I did quite like the reference to I Kings, Chapter 3, about two mothers that both wanted the child...sweet story... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margery | 7/24/2011

    " A heart-warming story about a child's faith that teaches us all.
