Susan Wilson is brilliant! We have all grieved through losses in

Susan Wilson is brilliant!
We have all grieved through losses in our life. Justine seems to bring on some of this grief herself. The Parmalees are broken, going through their day to day existence. Mack is the common denominator.

Wilson is honest in revealing the faults of the characters in The Dog Who Danced. Like all of us, Justine is not perfect, she struggles with life decisions. She does what she thinks is best and yet it never is. Mack is anchor in her life. No story spoilers here though, I'll let you enjoy the rollercoaster of emotion this book brings.
It starts so dark that I almost felt troubled reading it. Stick with it, you won't be sorry or disappointed. This book is for everyone, not just dog lovers. It's about human spirit and inner strength.

Wish There Was More Dancing

Unfortunately, I found this bookquite winded and filled with a bit too much detail. The idea of the story, as an animal lovercinteresred me. A girl with a special dog and her journey to get him back. At first in part one i was hooked....but honestly it could have ended ...
Unfortunately, I found this bookquite winded and filled with a bit too much detail. The idea of the story, as an animal lovercinteresred me. A girl with a special dog and her journey to get him back. At first in part one i was hooked....but honestly it could have ended shortly after. The rest I feel was predictable, long winded, slow and i found myself skipping pages. In doing so i didnt miss anything. Very dissapointed. Although i give the idea of the dog a thumbs up....i cant do so for this book .
