(30) Emily and Einstein by Linda Francis Lee

What do you think it would be like to come back as a dog? Wonder no more! Linda Francis Lee explores that option in her new novel, Emily and Einstein.

Emily is living the high life in New York City with her husband, Sandy. They have an amazing apartment at the Dakota and Emily is happier than she ever thought possible. Then one day, Sandy is killed in a tragic accident, leaving Emily to pick up the pieces of their once fairy tale dream. Only it does not take Emily long to discover that her dream life was really a nightmare. Thank goodness for Einstein, the rescue dog she rescued soon after Sandy's death. Emily is shocked at the connection she has with Einstein, it is almost as if he can read her mind....

Emily and Einstein was a darling novel about second chances. What happens when you are given a second chance to do the right thing? Linda Francis Lee tells her story with two voices. Alternating chapters from Emily and Einstein's viewpoints. The contrast between the two viewpoints are so vast that even the font used for the chapters emphasize their differences.

Dog lovers will LOVE this book. Non-Dog lovers will love this book, too! It is a well written book about something we have all wondered about at one point in time or another. What happens after we die? So following that train of thought, I am convinced that my dog was a nine year old girl in his former life. He can be a bit squirrely at times and is afraid of anything that moves. What do you think your dog was in a former life?

This book looks good. I'll have to look for it. Based on what my dog chews up I have to assume she was a goat in her former life.

LOL @ Christina. Brandie - I can't wait to hear what you think.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
