Item Description...
Enjoying an idyllic life with their adopted four-year-old son Joey in a small town outside Atlanta, Jack and Molly Campbell are stunned when Joey's biological father, recently released from prison, demands the return of his son, forcing the grieving Campbells into a potentially desperate situation. Reprint.

Publishers Description
Jack and Molly Campbell are right where they want to be, enjoying an idyllic life with their four-year-old son Joey, and the close family and friends who live in their small hometown just outside Atlanta. Then the phone call comes from the social worker the Campbells never expected to hear from again. Three states away in Ohio, Joey's biological father has just been released from prison. He is ready to start life over, but not without his son.
A judge's quick decision deals a devastating blow to the Campbell family: Joey must be returned to his biological parents. The day after the ruling, in the silent haze of grief and utter disbelief, they watch their son pick a dandelion and blow the feathery seeds into the wind.
In the days that follow the ruling, Jack Campbell has a desperate and dangerous thought. What if they can devise a way out? Then they could take Joey and simply disappear . . . LIKE DANDELION DUST.

Community Description

When a judge rules that Joey must be returned to his father, the Campbells, in a silent haze of grief and utter disbelief, watch their son pick a dandelion and blow the feathery seeds into the wind. Struggling with the dilemma of following the law, their hearts, and what they know to be morally right, the Campbells find that desperation leads to dangerous thoughts. What if they could devise a plan to take Joey and simply dandelion dust. . .

Reviews - What do our customers think?
One of My Favorites!  Mar 25, 2010
This is one of my favorite books by Karen Kingsbury apart from the Baxter series. I loved reading about how the Campbells dealt with the drama of almost losing their adopted son. I would have done the same exact thing if someone had tried to take my child away from me. I love how the characters in Karen Kingsbury's books deal with everyday situations that real people deal with every day. I feel that I learn so much about life and myself when I read one of her books.
Sweet Story  Mar 25, 2010
This was an easy read and a sweet story with a beautiful message. I can't wait for the movie to come out in September! I love this author!
Had trouble deciding between a 3 or a 4!  Mar 18, 2010
There are already thorough reviews about the plot, so I won't go into that. Just adding my comments about Kingsbury's writing.

At first, I thought, this is a 4, because I couldn't really think of anything that wrong with it. It kept my attention, produced characters that are interesting as well as a storyline. I've said before, I think Kingsbury is a good writer, not a brilliant writer. As another reviewer her for this book (Samuel B Tuttle), stated that she is "a simple writer and a great storyteller" (but not a great writer.) I think this is aptly put, and that's exactly why I like Kingsbury novels. The writing doesn't really have to be of the highest caliber to make good reading; I have to remind myself how hard it would be to write a novel like this, be it that or not.

If you're not into Christian fiction or similar genre you might say this is not a good book. It all depends on what you're interested in. Looking at it strictly on whether or not it's a good story, I think it is. If you're looking at it for highest caliber of writing, then I would give it a 3.

I would like to see her write about characters that don't always have to be rich, beautiful or powerful. Her characters often seem stereotypical. Example in the book being Rip. I know he was a drunken hothead, but still, would he really not try harder to behave himself for a couple of visits not amounting to more than an overnight stay? To abuse the boy physically and verbally the first time he saw him I don't find believable. But I think the emotions and feelings and everything about how the parents felt about their son being taken from them were very well conveyed.

Very good  Mar 11, 2010
I don't have any personal experience with adoption, but if I were considering it, this book would make me nervous! It would make me want to make absolutely sure that what happens in "Like Dandelion Dust" could never happen to me if I adopted any children. The book is provocative in another way: it makes you ask yourself, "Would I take such drastic measures if I were in the adoptive parents' situation?" Like most of Karen Kingsbury's books, this one hooks you and keeps you turning the pages. My only complaint is that like most of Kingsbury's child characters, the little boy in this book is just too unbelievably cute and perfect. But don't let that stop you from reading "Like Dandelion Dust."
Pressing Deeper into the Lord  Feb 23, 2010
As a parent, LIKE DANDELION DUST gripped my heart. The thought of loving a child so intensely and then having to give him up is one that every parent at one time or another encounters. Yet, for adoptive parents, Molly and Jack Campbell, the dreaded thought becomes a cruel reality when Joey's biological mom wants her son back. Kingsbury performs masterfully, taking us inside the thoughts and feelings of her characters, pressing us deeper into faith in God, especially through the eyes of a four-year-old boy. Eileen Rife, author of JOURNEY TO JUDAH, Book one in the Born for India trilogy, [...], Journey to Judah
