    Beautifully written memoir about life, pets, and friendship

    The author does a wonderful job of illustrating the true essence of life -- giving of yourself to care for those you love, human and animal, and appreciate their love in return.

    It was ok

    The book was just ok to me. I did enjoy it however. Definitely took from it some things I can apply to myself.

    Recommended

    I was surprised how much this book hit close to home for me. It is beautifully written, and completely bittersweet. Definitely a tearjerker! I really enjoyed this book, and would recommend it.

    An honest look at friendships between women - a relationship that should hold just as much value as the one between spouses. My mom always told me that your significant other can not be your only relationship, they can't be everything for you. This book drove that lesson home page after page.

    Dog Lovers and Friendship

    This was a great book. If you have lost a good friend, this will take you back, exposing those feelings. If you are a dog lover you can relate too. This book gripped me from beginning to end.

    A quick, emotional and satisfying reading

    Caldwell has a wonderful way with expressing the depth of her grief, her coming to terms with Caroline's death, and her observation of animals. Her description of her dog's scary adventure with the pit bulls had me glued to the book. As a dog lover, I could agree that there was an angel guiding that great dog home. I could have done with a little less of Gail's drinking past, but it had a reason to be there, I guess: to explain the comraderie she and Caroline shared. Very much recommended.
