Can a dog mend a broken heart?

When a stray dog walks into a sleepy Chiltern village, she touches the lives of many people there but can she help the recently widowed Alfie Ellis who has been living a kind of half-life since the loss of his wife of forty-three years?

A Dog Called Hope is a touching and heart-warming novella of 49 pages from the bestselling author of A Weekend with Mr Darcy and Wish You Were Here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart tugging & Happy Tears! 7 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I wasn't totally sure what I was going to get as a story with a novella, but this had plenty of parts to get you into the story and I literally had to finish it in one go to find out what was going to happen with Hope. I don't want to write any more on the story or it would give things away, but trust me you want to find out!

As usual with this author the details are good so you can imagine just how the garden, the walks, all the shops would have been.

Beautiful little story, perfect for an hour or so!

5.0 out of 5 stars A sensational read 7 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I was gripped with this book from the first few lines I read. I am a great dog lover so I know how special an animal they are and just how much of an impact they can have on ones own life and it is brought across beautifully in this well written short story where we see exactly the impact a rescue dog called Hope has on several peoples life's ....... As the ole saying goes, "where theirs life theirs Hope"... Read this people you won't be disappointed I both laughed and cried reading it x

What a wonderful little novella! I am involved with dog rescue and this charming story would be the perfect advert for rescue! Alfie is such a sad man when we meet him and the cautious friendship with Hope that blossoms into more is a moving read. Have your tissues close by! I love Victoria Connelly's books and to read a story by her that is about dog rescue is a perfect combination!
