    1. 'Netgalley ARC provided by The Publisher in exchange for my unbiased review'1.5 stars for effort! Let me say that a downside to this structure of a book is that the plot spills outside of the confines in so many ways that it makes it hard for the readers to follow,plus there are too many characters, each with just too much unnecessary drama and non-story and this is what happen in this story. The arc of the storyline is weak,childish and feels disjointed,with a few plotlines omitted in an unsati [...]


    2. LovelyThis was a lovely story with a lovely cast of characters. Grace, Marie, Sarah and Jen along with their friends are a fun group of quirky and humorous women who come together to form their own little family. The love for one another is sweet and the trials they each faced in life at times familiar. A feel good kind or story which I definitely would recommend. Look forward to reading more by this Author.


    3. ‘Lavender Dreams’ is a really immersive, feel-good story that dealt with some issues that lesbians of all ages have to face. It is multi-generational and I found that to be the main strength of the book. Diana Sue Wellspring has managed to weave the lives of very different women who pull together when it really counts. Sarah is a nurse in need of a break from the stress of her life so moves to the tranquillity of an island off Seattle to look after an elderly lady. Grace and her companion Ma [...]


    4. This is a nice story with many characters. It is interesting to see how women, because of the circumstances and situations that happen to them, help each other and deepen their relationships throughout the story. Perhaps because there are so many characters in the book and each with their personal history exposed, it may sometimes be difficult to remember names and facts that have been explained in the book. Neither is there much in depth in the stories of the characters. And it seemed to me som [...]


    5. An absolute must read. What a treasure!Wow, wow and again wow! A wonderful, unforgettable story about true love, friendship, chosen family, aging, major life changes, emotional support, bigotry, weddings, disabilities, pets, butches, bikes and so much more. The story is very refreshing, motivating and inspiring. The author has written vividly the personalities of all the different women and given us a beautiful impression of Lavender Meadow and the surroundings. You'll love these women with each [...]


    6. Serious editing issuesI bought this book based on the great reviews even though I had never heard of the author. I'm only a third of the way through and though the story is interesting it is in need of a better editor or some beta readers. At one point Jen is telling a story about her first love and the girl's name changed halfway through. Then Sarah almost faints because she finds out Annie and Grace were together before Annie died. Well 50 pages earlier Grace told her the same thing. Again I'm [...]


    7. I had to wait a bit to write this review. I wasn't sure how I felt about it. Very mixed emotions. First, it's a great story. The meaning of family. Choosing one's own family. How much older people still need a purpose. How important community can be, especially during times of hardship. Just a great multigenerational tale of community. Second, that was also part of the problem. There were way too many characters. I had trouble keeping them in order and knowing who they were. It was quite distrac [...]


    8. (view spoiler)[First of all, I would like to thank NetGalley for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review. Sarah and her partner, Nancy, split up, and Sarah decides she's ready for a change. She packs up her cat (Miss Margret) and takes a job as a live-in nurse to Grace, owner of Lavender Meadows. Sarah has no idea how much her life will change in such a short time. I don't want to say more than that as it may ruin the book for others. Favorite Quotes: "I've learned so much here [...]


    9. I was given a free copy of this book for an honest review via netgalley. I'm sorry to say that I cannot get any further in this book. If I have to read the word dyke one more time, I might throw my computer across the room. As a lesbian, I, personally, do not care for the word and still find it offensive. But even if I did use the word, as some lesbians do, I would still be offended. I swear, it is the default word for lesbian in this book. Dykey clothes, dykemobile, hungry dykes, dyke nurse, dy [...]


    10. I'd like to thank Net-Galley for the opportunity to read an advanced copy. I could honestly see this story as a miniseries for a lesbian drama. A lord characters, plots, sub plots, which can get confusing if you lose track of a character or two. Valiant effort to the author on putting together this story though, very rarely do you see a storyline that focuses on multigenerational LGBT folks and allies living together. Deep winter read.


    11. Enjoyable, funny, joyous, and some parts sad kind of book. I am only give 3 stars as I got lost with all the characters and I just could not remember who was who at some points Lee and her back story was by far the saddest thing .r her parents to shame her and drop her off in the middle of town at 14 I cried!! Lavender Meadows was a house were woman go to heal.Family is not always blood that is for sure!!My thanks to NetGalley, the author and publisher for the ARC in exchange for an honest revie [...]


    12. *I was given an ARC by Netgallery for an honest review. *OK book. Loved the plot but it had too many characters, I sometimes had no idea the characters back stories or I would confuse them.


    13. I was given an ARC by Netgallery for an honest review. I simply loved this book. I may be a little bias too because I lived in Seattle. Sarah is a nurse that is burnt out and on a ferry ride to a new job Sarah meets Jen. I don't want to give away too much, but the book is about creating family with different generations. Grace & Marie are just wonderful supportive characters that mesh very well with Sarah. The romance may be a little lacking to some readers, as the book focuses on a new vent [...]


    14. Absolutely Excellent!Lavender Dreams is the best book I have read in a long time. Great story. Beautifully written. Love, romance, friendship and chosen family. The plot? Two elder lesbians turn their home into a care facility for women in need of nursing care. Loved this book.
