Publisher's Summary

He was a man who didn’t deserve a second chance... but he needed one. Emily and her husband, Sandy Portman, seemed to live a gracious if busy life in an old-world, Upper West Side apartment in the famous Dakota building. But one night on the way to meet Emily, Sandy dies in a tragic accident. The funeral isn't even over before Emily learns she is on the verge of being evicted from their apartment. But worse than the possibility of losing her home, Emily is stunned when she discovers that her marriage was made up of lies.

Suddenly, Emily is forced on a journey to find out who her husband really was... all the while feeling that somehow he isn't really gone. And what if he isn't?

Angry, hurt, and sometimes betrayed by loving memories of the man she lost, Emily finds comfort in a scruffy dog named Einstein. But is Einstein's seemingly odd determination that she save herself enough to make Emily confront her own past? Can he help her find a future - even after she meets a new man?

    "Nice story, endearing main character"

    I really enjoyed the story and characters and found myself looking forward to getting in the car to listen more. (And even sat long after arrival to finish a chapter.). I have mixed feelings on the audio performance, but overall would recommend the book, and would read more from this author.

    "Love everlasting"

    I recommend this book highly to anyone who has had a loss in their life. It is the perfect book about love, betrayal, hope, and closure. It keeps you guessing all the way through to the end. It will completely touch you heart.

    "New York Comes Alive"

    I always think of city life as cold and cheerless, but this story was sweet. The narration was comfortable and enjoyable. This was the perfect book to enjoy while fighting a bad cold.

    "OK story, bad editing and frustrating antagonist"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The performance was decent, but there were several times when the reader didn't like the way she delivered the line and read it again. Clearly there was no editing done, or not enough and it really threw me off the story. *Attempting to not leak spoilers* The antagonist was so frustrating, I really hoped he wouldn't find redemption.

    "Predictable but fun"

    Many similarities to "Finding Mr. Right" but I'm a hopeless romantic when it comes to dogs. Emit was an inspiring character.

    In her story Linda Francis Lee has taken fiction to an entirely different realm. I look forward to reading more.
