The collection of letters written by Sharon Discorfano in the weeks after Pushkin's passing, and the inspiration behind the web site LettersToPushkin.com.

After the death of her beloved beagle Pushkin, Sharon decided to write a letter each day to him during the season of Lent. The collection of letters begins on Ash Wednesday -- just a few weeks after his passing -- and finishes on Easter Sunday. During these weeks of grieving, Sharon reaches out to different perspectives on death and life by drawing on literature and philosophy, personal experiences, and the people and animals around her. Meanwhile, life is still happening -- people are visiting, events are unfolding, and decisions have to be made. In the process, life takes some surprising new directions. Share the journey and the hope that it brings.

50% of author's royalties will go to Bideawee, the humane organization that brought Sharon and Pushkin together. www.bideawee.org
