Fur People

When Sunny Lytle is evicted for keeping her fur family of thirteen dogs, eight cats, two ferrets, and two rabbits in her apartment in Kentucky, she packs them into a converted school bus and returns to her hometown, DeLeon Springs, Florida. Her dream is to create a no-kill animal rescue, but survival soon takes top priority. Camping in the woods is no longer the peaceful haven of her teen years, and the brutal demands of nature and the threatening intervention of Rita, a well-meaning veterinarian, create an ongoing struggle.

Publisher's Summary

When Sunny Lytle is evicted for keeping her fur family of thirteen dogs, eight cats, two ferrets, and two rabbits in her apartment in Kentucky, she packs them into a converted school bus and returns to her hometown, DeLeon Springs, Florida. Her dream is to create a no-kill animal rescue, but survival soon takes top priority. Camping in the woods is no longer the peaceful haven of her teen years, and the brutal demands of nature and the threatening intervention of Rita, a well-meaning veterinarian, create an ongoing struggle. Buck, a quirky homeless man, becomes her brave ally.

Reconnecting with her alcoholic father and her high school boyfriend Jason revive fear and desire for Sunny. Relationships for Rita and Jason, and Sunny’s married Kentucky boyfriend Bear, rise and fall along the battlefront between societal values and passionate love for animals.

To honor their memories, all animal names used in the novel are of deceased fur friends beloved by their families. True anecdotes of animal-human interaction enliven the scenes.

    I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."

    "For Two-Leggers who Love Four-Leggers"

    Vicki Hendricks has written a sweet little adventure-mystery for animal lovers.

    Under-employed Sunny is one of those people to whom stray animals are magnetically drawn; an animal lover verging on hoarder. She's caretaker to multiple cats, dogs, ferrets, and rabbits, and her landlord’s had enough.

    Packing the whole clan into her van, they set out for her home town and end up homeless in the woods. Time to set things right.

    "Fur People" works smashingly as an audiobook. Audible has a different narrator for each point of view, (two-leggers and animals alike have a voice here) each distinct and fully realized, but threaded together with a common humor. The whole book is really funny.

    There are both animal and human rivalries and conflicts. I loved hearing how Sunny, with the help of her fur-family puts her life back together.
