About Me

My photo


Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Serials and Scenarios - Karen Kingsbury - Like Dandelion Dust

A momentary rest from the ski saga.
Hope you can make it through the weekend without knowing where I ended up.

Karen Kingsbury is this week’s author of interest.

I haven’t read her new book “Like Dandelion Dust” but I like the title. I’d give it a 8.2 out of 10, but I’m fond of alliteration (must be the poet in me – ha).

I’ve read one Karen Kingsbury novel – “A Time to Dance.” A well-written, heart-wrenching novel that stayed with me for quite awhile.

My daughter developed a love/hate relationship with “One Tuesday Morning.” When whimpering floats from the living room it's a good sign my daughter is reading Karen. Karen should take this as a compliment since my daughter chooses titles carefully.

Visit Amazon for reviews of “Like Dandelion Dust” http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1931722854

and Karen’s Website to get to know her and the rest of her books.

Have a great weekend.

Ahh, karen k. She is amazing, if only we could all provoke the emotions of our fellow humanity as she does. The world would be a better place.

I've got that book in my "to read" pile. It's a signed copy I got at a book-signing. Karen was lovely to talk to.
