Lovely story beautifully written.
on 3 January 2014
It's not that often we get to enjoy a beautifully written romance that also sympathetically imparts a message of such importance about the welfare of our animal friends. Suzie Carr's style makes her writing a real pleasure to read, at times it's almost like listening to music. I chose to reread certain parts before moving on with the story, as the words flowed in such a way that I wanted to enjoy them a second time. The love story is well told, and we get to hear the first person perspective from both characters, which is so much more personal and enlightening than the standard narrative. The subplot focuses on the animals abandoned by their human owners, and the struggles of those passionate enough to want to help. It's not judgemental, it's not 'silly-sad' and it drives the message home.
This is one of those books that I will put aside, to read and enjoy again, some time in the future.
