I throughly enjoyed this book and I can relate to it in my personnel life because I am a widower. It is a good story of survival after a tragic loss in one's life. We tend to blame God for everything and we don't look into why He lets things happen the way they do. It is in His will that we survive and get through things like this. Mary was a survivor because she relied on Rufus (her dog) to talk things out. I personnelly feel that Mary was not really talking to the dog but to God and this is her way of putting her life in order. God has plans for us whether we like it or not it is His Will. Great story it kept me wanting to read more and more from the beginning to the end.

    Huge reader

    This book was hard to get into. Between the grammatical errors, spelling issues, and multiple tangent, the first half of the book is boring. It finally got good the second half. Too wordy and slow to develop the story.

    Terrible - the whole talking dog was just plain stupid - The story was a good one and Mary's struggles were appropriate but having the dog talk was just dumb

    Tedious

    I couldn't finish the book. It seemed too simple in its style , as if a student was writing it. I liked the character and the dog, but the dialog was disappointing.
