    Story

    Workaholic attorney Samantha Sweeting has just done the unthinkable. She's made a mistake so huge, it'll wreck any chance of a partnership.

    Going into utter meltdown, she walks out of her London office, gets on a train, and ends up in the middle of nowhere. Asking for directions at a big, beautiful house, she's mistaken for an interviewee and finds herself being offered a job as housekeeper. Her employers have no idea they've hired a lawyer and Samantha has no idea how to work the oven.

    Susan Solo says: "A wild ride!"
    "I loved it"
    Overall

    I found myself so caught up in the main character. I felt her fears and her frustrations as well has her joys. I have been telling my friends about this book, and I highly recommend it!

    On September 6, 2007, an African Grey parrot named Alex died prematurely at age 31. His last words to his owner, Irene Pepperberg, were "You be good. I love you." What would normally be a quiet, very private event was, in Alex's case, headline news. Over the 30 years they had worked together, Alex and Irene had become famous - two pioneers who opened an unprecedented window into the hidden yet vast world of animal minds.

    "Amazing book"
    Overall

    I was always interested seeing Alex on PBS specials. To hear his story from Dr. Pepperberg was enchanting and wonderful. I am on my 4th or 5th listen to this book. The concept of animal cognition really touches home. I do believe that it is a matter of degree, and not a switch!
