A broken soldier.
A nearly-blind abandoned bride.
Will love bind their hearts together,
or will stubborn pride unravel the family they both love?
Meet the main characters in Dandelions on the Wind, Novella #1 in The Quilted Heart omnibus!
1. What is your job? Describe a little about what you do.
I was a farmer then a soldier. What I do next, work or otherwise, depends upon how Elsa Brantenberg receives me.
2. How would you describe yourself?
A disappointment. But I’m hungry to change that description. And that reality.
3. What do you need most?
Forgiveness. And a second chance at fatherhood.
4. How do you face disappointments or hardship?
In the past, I ran. Now, I pray. Real hard. And press on.
5. What is your most important goal in life?
To reunite with my little girl. She’d be four years of age now.
6. What are you most afraid of?
That I won’t be given a second chance.
7. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?
To the day before my daughter was born. I’d like a chance to do things differently. To do right by her and her grandmother.
8. What do you put off because of dread, or you just don’t want to do it?
Returning to Saint Charles and the farm that had been my home.
9. What is most important to you?
To return to Saint Charles and make sure the daughter I abandoned knows I love her.
10. What do you want others to see in you?
My new dependence upon God for each step.
“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.”
Maren Jensen’s fondness for Hans Christian Anderson’s romantic musings had waned somewhere in the Atlantic between Denmark and America. Now, weeks later, she sat on another boat, a paddlewheeler steaming up the Missouri River and the poet’s words were taunting her. She’d started the day in the wee hours, stepping off of the train from New York and onto the boat in Saint Louis that had carried her up the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. Hans Christian Anderson could keep his traveling for himself. All she wanted was a home.
