I have three great books to showcase for you today. All three feature great dogs. Even though I am a big-time cat lover I love all animals. Well, most of them:) So I have chosen three great books about dogs and the people who love them to help get you through those Dog Days of Summer:)
I will let you know straight away that you will need your hankie for this one. I just realized it is a novel. Nonetheless, be prepared to cry. People who loved THE ROSIE PROJECT are raving about this one! You are going to love LILY AND THE OCTOPUS by Steven Rowley ( Simon & Schuster).
Here comes another great novel featuring dogs. JONATHAN UNLEASHED by Meg Rosoff( Viking) is witty and smart. Nothing like a clever romantic comedy to get you through those, yes, dog days of summer…
DOG MEDICINE by Julie Barton (Penguin) is the only one of the three books here that is actually non-fiction. Julie brings a story that is first hand about depression and how a dog saved her life. Julie was young when hit by a bout of depression that appeared out of the blue for no apparent reason. She was enjoying the best time of her life. The only thing that brought her out of the hole of depression was a Golden Retriever puppy she named Bunker:)
Many thanks to the three amazing publishers that provided copies: Simon & Schuster; Viking; and Penguin.
