I read this book and it was really good. I am only 14 years old and the book really touched my heart, I cannot fathom how this book would touch a mother's heart. I strongly recommend it.

This book definately pulls at your heart. You can't help but want the Campbell's to do whatever they have to in order to keep Joey. I found myself engrossed because I just had to know who Joey ended up with. This is an amazing book by Karen Kingsbury and I can't wait to read more of her books.

Molly and Jack Campbell are heartbroken when they get news that their four-year old son Joey only has a few more months to live with them. Then he has to return to his biological parents. Joey's biological father has just gotten out of jail and wants his son back. The Campbells love their son and do not know what they will do when he is gone. They want to fight the judge's decision, but it seems as if there is no way to do so. Molly and Jack will do anything to keep Joey, even if it means putting themselves at risk. I think Like Dandelion Dust is a great book. I'm not usually a reader, but this book made me want to keep reading. I have two adopted siblings so I could somewhat relate to the book. It would be horrible if I was told my siblings were going to be taken away from me. Also, the book had a little bit of romance involved which I liked. Furthermore, I think it's great that Karen Kingsbury tied in religious ideas. Writing about God and His will for us brought great life lessons into the book.

This book is so well written, it was hard to put down! At one point I felt my heart being torn out of my chest. All I could do was cry as read what was happening. The ending is not what you may think. I would really recommend that you take the time to read this book. We can learn alot from Joey about talking with God and faith and trust! I believe that every parent can identify with Jack and Molly and would do the samething.....

A very touching story of two mothers and their love for Joey. I couldn't put it down, dreaded the inevitable and loved the ending. :)

This is another wonderful book by Karen Kingsbury. It addresses social issues that most writers avoid all the while capturing your attention and heart in a moving story.

It shows how two people's love for one little boy can lead to hard descions that can change your life forever. A bit confusing but goodl job Karen Kingsbury!

This book was amazing, I could not put it down for one second. It was sad but thrilling, has all that you need in a book. I have never read anything by Kingsbury before but I am going to look for more now. The only thing that I got annoyed with was every little thing was related to god's will. I am religious and beleive in god but it seemed to me that that could have been toned down a little bit. Still loved the book and does not make me change my opinion about it.

I'm a devoted Karen Kingsbury fan. I've read many of her books and loved them all. All but this one. While it still has her wonderful writing and deep characters, the overall feeling of the book is depressing. It's heavy ¿ dark. Yes, it has a happy ending, but it's slower than her other books. Digging deep into the psyche of the characters, she portrays them well, but I found myself skimming and turning pages to get to the action. Will I read another Kingsbury book? You bet. But this one is not a keeper in this reviewer's opinion.

This book was a Barnes and Noble daily find which sat in my library for some time before I actually started reading it. I thought I'd be trudging my way through it, but found it to be a really good story. Parenting is not just being able to produce a child, but the love that is shown to that child throughout his/her life. My heart broke again and again for the little boy and his adoptive parents as they journeyed through the possibility of losing each other to the biological mother. But I also understood the pain of the biological mother as she struggled between her love for her little boy, and the hardest choice of her life. Good read....gave me both perspectives to think about.

This is an excellent book on faith and trust in God. The characters are so real that you find yourself wanting to pray for them but then you remember its fiction. It is a must read if you believe in the love of God and family. Mizpah58

This is a modern day story of how far one would go to protect someone you love. It will give you the opportunity to think about how you base your choices. You will be thinking of this one days after you finish it.

This book brings forth errors than can be made during legal transactions dealing with children and their adoption. One has a heartache for the birth mother and the love she shows to her adopted child. The deep chasm is shown between the financial levels of the adoptive parents and the natural parents. This book would be a good choice for book clubs.
