So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria, God and life, teaching and gardening plus the occasional cow

Oooh good I thought,looking at a list on Kindle, let’s have an animal book for a change.  A nice doggy one. 

The story starts as Brucie, a collie cross is adopted from a Rescue centre by a crazy family,  and he happily goes off into his new life.  The dog has been abused himself and in his first days he finds out more about the bereaved family which consists of two sets of twins who fight and love.  I’m not so sure about seeing emotions as colours and dogs having second sight, but I was totally engrossed in the characters in the story, from whatever perspective they are written. It worked really well as a technique too – you’ll see what I mean when you read it. 

Then I thought, blast, it’s turning  into a gay book and prepared to ditch it, but no, it’s about love.  It certainly isn’t what the cover looks like. Its quite unique. Its sad and heartwarming, true and fantastical.  I wonder if my dog ever thought or felt these things? More please, Mr Stone
