The one issue I had with the book is that it is sometimes slowed by the author recounting conversational prayers. If you believe that God watches every sparrow fall, and has a plan for you to learn from every trouble, this book is right up your alley. I thought some of those asides were a bit long winded, however valid to the book's ultimate message, and could have used some judicious trimming while still making the same points. At times I think it slowed the story, though as they are in letter form, they are easy to skim or skip. Even if you occasionally decide to skim some of the prayers -- that to me seemed more of a personal nature between the author and God and not for me to intrude on, however inspirational the book is supposed to be -- the bulk of the book is solid and a good read.
Nevertheless, the world is richer for the Vicky Kaseorgs of the planet, whose story of redemption and personal transformation is not only inspirational, but darn funny. Her self-deprecating sense of humor, her compassion, and her inner turmoil are a delightful revelation. She has struck gold with this first novel!
Who would have thought you could find such exceptional quality in an eBook for $2.99???
PS. Any resemblance to any character in this masterpiece of fine writing is purely a coincidence....No animals were harmed in the writing of this review....
Taking casual note of this dying abandoned dog in a parking lot starts a journey of redemption, renewal and ultimate reward for Vicky, her family, and her dogs. It's fun as well as pathos-laden. What Father Flanaghan did for boys (with help), Vicky has done for dogs (with help from rescuers, home schoolers, and the pet public). It is instructional, as well as heart-warming. A story for all, transforming with religious precepts illustrated as they occur.
Thank goodness I can write this with no prejudice, since I am Vicky's proud father.
Stories of redemption are always good, and when they involve dogs, I find it hard to resist. When I started this book, I was a little repulsed by the Christian tone, but I chose to stick with it. Thankfully I am fortunate enough to know that many things are not as they appear. There can often be a cover or appearance that hides treasure. So I dug in, and I read, and I did laugh and cry.
Boy am I glad I did. To use a metaphor, the marrow of the bone that is this book was worth the effort. I know that most well told stories are more than the shell, or bone, there is often more to it, layers, inferences, and it seems clear that any dog with a bone patiently works for that treat inside.
This is a well told story and thoroughly entertaining(I admit I skimmed over her prayers). I suppose we all suffer the same life. In that, I felt like I was a comrade and relating to her struggle was as easy as could be.
There is no shortage of suffering in this world, both animals and people are often left alone, and in the worst cases, without capacity to survive, with little choice. And any source of inspiration, Christian or other, anyone finds seems like a good thing to me. I may not be a Christian, but I am human, and I love. After reading this book I felt less lonely and that there is a little less suffering in the world.
