I am so, so excited to tell you that THE DANDELION is live!  I loved everything about this story, from the way it began as a dream to the way I cried a few times as I wrote it.  This book has some of the most real and raw and wounded characters I’ve ever fallen in love with, but I think that’s why I love them so much.  And I truly believe you will, too, but I want to implore you to TRUST ME.  Trust me that, although there are obstacles and struggles that cut to the heart of every woman, this book is one of love and hope and friendship and selflessness of epic proportions.  Trust me to bring you closure and happiness, the kind we all have to work for, but the kind that’s made all the more special because we have to work for it.

Give this book a try.  Give this love a try.  Give this HOPE a try:)  I sincerely hope you adore the story as much as I do!


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.

5 Stars

Wow – Michelle Leighton pulls no punches in this emotional, heart wrenching story! This is a love story but it’s also so much more! It’s a story of healing, forgiveness and redemption. Abi knows pain, it’s been a part of her life for years, she returns home to try to escape for a little while, sit by the lake and find peace. What she doesn’t expect to find is Sam, her first love and the man she’s never been able to forget, in a painful place of is own, and she maybe the only one to help him. But that idea brings hope, and that’s not something Abi has much of these days.

I want this review to be completely spoiler free, this is a book that has to be experienced and felt! It’s a beautiful story but it’s not the easiest read, it’s emotional and hard and frustrating at times but Michelle delivers a stunning story. I laughed, and cried and swooned and broke a bit but it was worth it for the love and the hope that these people find. Michelle Leighton has always been one of my go-to authors and it’s because of books like this! Definitely a book I recommend with my whole heart, maybe just grab some tissues and a glass of wine! Thank you Michelle for another beautiful journey that will have a forever place in my heart!
