  • A Dog Named Boo: How One Dog and One Woman Rescued Each Other - And the Lives They Transformed Along the Way

    The last thing Lisa Edwards needed was a new dog. But when she came across an abandoned litter on Halloween, her heart went out to the runt who walked into walls and couldn't steady his feet. Lisa - healing from past abuse and battling constant pain from a chronic medical condition - saw a bit of herself in little Boo. And when he snuggled, helpless, against her, she knew he was meant to be hers. The dunce of obedience class with poor eyesight and a clumsy gait, Boo was the least likely of heroes. Yet with his unflappable spirit and boundless love, Boo has changed countless lives through his work as a therapy dog.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I was expecting more entertainment and a whole lot less psychology of service dog. I guess I just did not read deep enough into the description

  • 1913: In Search of the World Before the Great War

    Today, 1913 is inevitably viewed through the lens of 1914: as the last year before a war that would shatter the global economic order and tear Europe apart, undermining its global pre-eminence. Our perspectives narrowed by hindsight, the world of that year is reduced to its most frivolous features last summers in grand aristocratic residences or its most destructive ones: the unresolved rivalries of the great European powers, the fear of revolution, violence in the Balkans.

    Story

    This was a great background to the why and who is/are of the current conflicts. It provides logic and compassion for generations of people who have are struggled with the modern age. And continue to struggle to to break free of the old ways.

    In the feuding English court, gentle Lady Madelyne suffered the cruel whims of her ruthless brother, Baron Louddon. Then, in vengeance for a bitter crime, Baron Duncan of Wexton—the Wolf—unleashed his warriors against Louddon's domain. Exquisite Madelyne was the prize he catured...but when he gazed upon the proud beauty, he pledged to protect her with his life.

    Story

    This may be a great story, Garwood has been a favorite author for 15+ years. But the reading is terrible! Seriously, since when did Uppercrust and Limey Englishmen mix in the middle ages? Some stories can be pleasantly read without acting them out so poorly. I regret this purchase.

    When five-week-old Prudence, a brown tabby, meets a woman named Sarah in a deserted construction site on Manhattan's Lower East Side, she knows she's found the human she was meant to adopt. For three years their lives are filled with laughter, tuna, catnaps, music, and the unchanging routines Prudence craves. Then one day Sarah doesn't come home. From Prudence's perch on the windowsill she sees Laura, the daughter who hardly ever comes to visit Sarah, arrive with her new husband. They're carrying boxes.

    Adorable story of the power of our pets to change us and how we may change them. Wonderful entertainment, laughed, cried and wished it would never end.
