Review: Emily and Einstein by Linda Francis Lee

Post 2 for Readers Heart Animals month is a review of a new book by Linda Francis Lee. I received this one a little while ago and it didn't take long for me to whiz through it. The story was exceptional and the characters are great. While there is a lot of sadness there is also a lot of hope. It's all about living your life, standing up for what's right, and second chances. I'll admit to having shed some tears while reading it but that's what makes a good book. One that can make you emotional is usually a winner in my eyes. If you enjoy dog stories then I'd say to check this one out. It's certainly and enjoyable and entertaining read! ************************************************************************************************ About The Book: (From Author's Website) 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. 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? **Review copy provided by publisher. All opinions are my own. I was given NO monetary compensation for this post.
