THIS IS A GREAT QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK, YOU WILL SEE WHY! ;) HERE IS MY REVIEW:
Planting His Dream
by: Andrew Grey
reviewed by: Becky
Foster dreams of getting away, but after his father’s death, he has to take over the family dairy farm. It soon becomes clear his father hasn’t been doing the best job of running it, so not only does Foster need to take over the day-to-day operations, he also needs to find new ways of bringing in revenue.
Javi has no time to dream. He and his family are migrant workers, and daily survival is a struggle, so they travel to anywhere they can get work. When they arrive in their old van, Foster arranges for Javi to help him on the farm.
To Javi’s surprise, Foster listens to his ideas and actually puts them into action. Over days that turn into weeks, they grow to like and then care for each other, but they come from two very different worlds, and they both have responsibilities to their families that neither can walk away from. Is it possible for them to discover a dream they can share? Perhaps they can plant their own and nurture it together to see it grow, if their different backgrounds don’t separate them forever.
My heart belonged to sweet, loyal Foster from the first of this book! I love the knack Andrew Grey has for making you fall in love with his characters as well as his books!
Foster works hard to keep the family farm afloat with the passing of his father and his mother and grandmother depend on him, so Foster's wants and needs get put on the back burner, but he can't help noticing Javi, one of the members of the family that works for Foster every so often, helping with the Asparagus crop, but Javi would never like a guy like him, would he? Does Javi even like guys?
Javi has had it rough, as has his mother and siblings, his father's drinking has made Javi grow weary of travelling around, working hard and having nothing to show for it. When he sees Foster again he beings to long for things he knows he could never have, or could he? Javi's family depends on him, he has to be strong for them.
When Javi has ideas to help Foster, he is surprised when Foster not only listens, but offers to let him help. For the first time Javi has stability and a taste of what a stable love and family might be like. When Javi is forced to make a decision between Foster and his family, someone will be hurt. Can Javi live without Foster and vice versa?
You will be sucked into this wonderful story just like I was! Thank you Andrew, for a great story I will read again and again!
