Kraus has created another delightful novel about an insightful dog who talks. Well, Thurman sort of growls but some people can understand exactly what he is saying. That would include Wilson Steele. He's an English professor with a past that includes horrors from Viet Nam. He'd made such a mess of his life back then that he is convinced God would never forgive him. He is certain too that he must live in solitude, not deserving a family.
But his mother has other ideas. She impulsively adopts a rescue dog. When the retirement home will not let her keep it, she makes Wilson take him. She knows he could use the companionship. That is the beginning of a relationship that changes Wilson's life.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It is an entertaining novel about character transformation and healing. Kraus has woven together the lives of several people who need a touch of love and a gentle push in the right direction. Thurman is the dog for the job. He knows exactly the right phrase to growl (or say) to move people toward the place where God can heal them.
This is a great book for dog lovers. It's great for people who like to read novels showing how God works events to bring people the healing they need and the relationships that enrich them. That God uses a dog is a fun and rewarding aspect of the novel.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
