I love Lisa Wingate's writing, and always look forward to reading another of her books. DANDELION SUMMER did not disappoint! The principle characters, Epiphany and J. Norman Alvord, are both deep and complex, having extremely different yet equally complex personal histories. As I made my way through their alternating narratives, and got to know them both, I felt more and more kinship with them, and I found myself turning pages faster and faster, hungry for the next surprise and the next. Ultimately, the well deserved ending rose well above my expectations, leaving me drenched in tears and grinning ear to ear. Bravo!

It’s wonderful to stumble upon an author like this and learn that she has so many more books to keep me reading well into the night. You will fall in love with these characters and want for them as if they are your family members! She wins my award for best author of the summer and being a Christian author is the icing on the cake.

What can I say! This was a very interesting read. Actually, when I began reading this book I thought humm. It was not like any of Lisa's books I had read. It didn't take me long, however, to get totally immersed. From then on, there was no putting it down until I had finished reading it. A sweet, touching story of a old man and teenage girl. A must read!

It's so refreshing to read a women's fiction novel that treads upon new territory. No angst-driven sisters or generations of self-absorbed women here. In this lovely book, we delve into the emotional lives of an older man nearing the end of his days and a young woman soon to embark on adulthood. (But don't get the idea this book is sad or maudlin: it's cheerful, uplifting, and sometimes genuinely funny.) These two don't expect to find wisdom or enjoyment from one another, but they certainly do, and it's a pleasure to watch them. It's also intriguing to go back and forth between their very different circumstances, both of which are described so deftly, you feel you're right there, witnessing all.

One more thing: this is a page turner. I was very eager to find out J. Norm's family secrets, and to get an idea how Epiphany (great name) would be propelled into a better life. All in all, highly recommended.

I love Lisa Wingate and she did not disappoint in this novel between the mentoring relationship between a grouchy and lonely old man and a young girl in need of someone in her life to care about her and provide direction. Her mother is too busy trying to find and keep a man to be bothered with her beautiful daughter. Too bad today's world doesn't offer the opportunity for these types of mentoring relationships. In this story, they touched on the inappropriateness of this type of relationship and is was purely helping one another through the problems of life.

After the death of his wife, Norm is a prisoner in his own home. His daughter encourages him to move to an assisted living facility, but he refuses. He wants to remain at home with his memories of his wife and children. He laments the time he spent working when he could have been with his family. All those Saturdays at the office in the race against the Russians to the moon. It was an exciting time for him, but now as all he has is a fractured relationship with his daughter. Because he refuses to keep his medicine nearby, he has a near death experience and he recalls a dining room with seven chairs. Norman was an only child, but he distinctly remembers four other familiar red-haired children. Who were they? He struggles to put the pieces together.

Epiphany is a bright high school student, who has moved frequently with her mother. She has never known any kind of stability. Norman's daughter hires her to cook for him. At first, Norman is just a grouchy old man but an unlikely friendship develops between the two and soon they are off on an adventure to discover who the red haired children are in Norman's memories.

The lives of Norman and Epi were so much alike. They were both searching for something in their lives. Excellent book!
I enjoyed this book immensely! Some of the things I liked the most were the interaction between the generations and the sense of history that the book invoked. In addition--it's always nice to read a book about people overcoming difficulties to mend relationships and reach their potential.
