Here are my two favorite quotes from the book:
Day after day we trundled along, our wagon wheels making their own tracks through the tall grass. "See how the grass closes behind us?" Mama said. "It's as if we'd never been."

"They will be," Papa said quickly."They'll cover the roof and they'll shout: This is home! But their roots have to take hold first, Becca. It isn't easy being transplanted."
"Maybe they'll never bloom," Mama said. "Maybe they'll just die of loneliness.".......
"They'll bloom, Mama. They're strong, like us." I was almost crying and I didn't know why.
Mama and Papa were looking at each other. This was about more than dandelions. I could feel it.
That part always makes me cry!
