Title: The Dandelion
Author: Michelle Leighton
Release Date: April 8, 2018
At thirty-five, Abigail Simmons has mastered only one thing—running. When tragedy strikes, she runs. This time her urge to flee brings Abi back to her hometown, where she hopes she can find the peace she’s always searched for. That hope is dashed when Abi’s ex, Sam Forrester, bumps his way back into her life.
Sam has flourished in ways Abi hasn’t. From the outside, he has it all—a successful medical practice, a beautiful daughter, and a charming wife.
Who is dying.
Sara Forrester is dying and her final wish is for Sam to find love again so she can meet the woman who will finish raising her daughter and grow old with her husband. Abi seems like the perfect fit, but what Sara doesn’t know is that Abi has a secret, a secret no one could guess.
And it’s a deal breaker.

Oh my word, this book!!!
The Dandelion is the first book from M. Leighton writing as Michelle Leighton and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Michelle is one of my few top ‘go-to’ authors who never disappoint me, I practically inhale her books! She has a great knack for taking you on an emotionally charged journey, breaking your heart along the way but building it back up towards the end.
The Dandelion is one of those books.
A beautiful, heart-felt and heartbreaking story of loss and second chances...a second chance at love. A second chance at living.
“Life without pain is life without living”
Still dealing with the recent loss of my mother I realised pretty early on that , perhaps, this was not the ideal time to read The Dandelion but it was too late. I was already invested in the lives of Abi, Sam, Sara and Noelle and I was determined to read their story, regardless of how tough it may be for me.
I immediately connected with Abi, my heart hurting so much for her over what she’d gone through, and was still going through. Her plight affected me in so many ways, I had to stop quite a few times to wipe away my tears and at one point I was sobbing so hard I couldn’t see.
I absolutely ADORED it!!!
I can’t recommend The Dandelion enough. Make it your next read but remember to stock up on tissues, you’re gonna need them!
I give The Dandelion...
