"Luke's Tale" by Carol McKibben is an emotional and bitter sweet love story. It tells us about a couple who both deal immaturely with her cancer and about their dog that holds the two of them together. Told from the perspective of the dog this is a pull on your heart strings that will appeal hugely to animal lovers and pet owners and will have many in tears throughout.  Sometimes too much for my liking in terms of the sentiment it redeems itself easily through the great development of the lead characters.

I like to stretch my literary horizons, and when something different comes along, I will often check it out. Carol McKibben is a masterful writer who portrays the emotional struggles of a young couple through the eyes of Luke, a yellow lab. It takes skill to make a reader suspend believe and go with the flow. Within a page or two, I accepted the human qualities of Luke, and wanted to know where the story was going. I got right into the story and read 80 pages the first night. I like mystery novels, and when Luke was trying to give his master (not really a good word in this case) clues about where the Ash's long-time friend, Sara,was, I really got into it. Each day, Luke would bring Ash objects Sara had owned. And each time, he failed to get the message. I don't want to spoil the story by giving too many details. I will say that the author was able to bring tears to my eyes. Yet, there was hope and, of course, as the title says, "unconditional love." Highly recommended!
