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?

    "A cute but shallow book"
    What did you like best about Emily and Einstein? What did you like least?

    Emily and Einstein is a favilous book without any substance. It is a fun read but that is all.


    Has Emily and Einstein turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes.


    Have you listened to any of Dan John Miller and Cassandra Campbell ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first performance by Dan John Miller and Cassandra Campbell that I have listened too. They did an excellence job with a very mediocre book.

    "Nice change"

    Narrators were good. Different take on losing a spouse. Interesting perspectives. A book you could read again.

    I love to read stories with a little mystery in them. Kate Morton is an excellent writer and I look forward to reading her newest book.

    "Found a new author to love"
    If you could sum up Emily and Einstein in three words, what would they be?

    Different, insightful, creative


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this book. The story was different than anything I'd read previously and i thoroughly enjoyed it. Planning on getting more by Linda Francis Lee. Learned a lot about publishing as well which was a bonus!

    "Second chances"

    Nice little story about second chances. My male friend is always telling me I am too nice. I have always thought I was just doing the right thing. Think I will just keep being me and maybe I will not have to come back in any reincarnation. On the other hand he will come back as a jack ass if life is fair.

    "Believing the impossible"

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

    "Kind of weird...."
    Any additional comments?

    I like Linda Francis Lee's other audiobooks, so I was hoping to like this one too. But......unfortunately, that didn't happen. The premise in a nutshell: Emily's husband dies and comes back as a dog named Einstein. His mind is in tact and he remains the pompous jerk that he was in life....but as a dog. <br/><br/>This is one of those books that could be an easy, middle-of-the-road listen if the narrators were good. I actually found Cassandra Campbell to be great. Her reading really gave some depth to the Emily character that I think could have been lost with a lesser reader. But, Dan John Miller, was terrible! He paused at weird times, pronounced things incorrectly (a brown stone, instead of brownstone) and had an uneven pace. It really took me out of the book whenever his reading came. I was wishing that CC just read the male part too. <br/><br/>Overall, not terrible.....just not great or as good as her other books.
