I reviewed Mary's book for endorsement because of my experience as a social worker. Here are my thoughts on this excellent novel crafted by a master at writing, Mary DeMuth, who is one of my favorite authors. She knows how to write real!
Wishing on Dandelions is an insightful and inspirational probe into the wounded soul of a young woman who has never allowed friends and loved ones to support her and help her heal from the trauma of childhood sexual abuse. Typical of abuse victims, Maranatha pushes everyone away, suspects all men, and fears emotional and physical intimacy. As Maranatha slowly learns to trust, the reader experiences the grace of God working in her life and slowly healing her heart. There is no better book on the inspirational market portraying the recovery process from childhood trauma in fiction form. Sadly, the experiences Maranatha had are far from fictional, and all too common.
