I was surprised that the latest book I received for review from Multnomah was originally published 2 years ago. However, it was a nice little book, and I am glad for the chance to read and review it.
The story is as much about Laurie as it is about Mia, the dog Laurie rescued. In helping Mia regain her health physically, Laurie regained her healthy spiritually. It was an interesting parallel as Mia taught Laurie how listening to a loving master is much like listening to a loving God. Mia gave Laurie many life lessons. For example, Mia proved to Laurie how resilient a happy heart can be. Mia also taught Laurie that honest love is like a tree; it stands firm and perseveres through storms.
Some of the lessons learned were a bit sappy and often predictable, but the book was not hard to read. In a world of smutty and violent books, it was refreshing to a story of a blind dog teaching a woman how to truly see.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
