Review of Charlie: A Love Story

514t0ZrDZELI am a cat person, and I do not garden. With that said, I truly enjoyed Charlie: A Love Story!

It’s Barbara Lampert’s heart that drew me through the pages. I walked with her through Charlie’s journey, and I enjoyed reading about her love of gardening, used as a respite from her roller coaster of worry over Charlie’s decline in health.

This story is told with a surplus of love for her dog that lingers on despite the years that have passed. It’s not one of those gut-wrenching stories where we agonize along with the author. Instead its a tribute to a dog whose love for his companion kept him by her side for as long as he possibly could stay. And its a tribute of an animal caregiver who went to the ends of earth to give her best friend the best of everything she could afford.

I truly loved this story, and I highly recommend it.

    • Hi Dezi and Raena – Sometimes its nice to peek over the fence and see what’s going on over there. I like to read books about dogs, bats, pigs, birds… We learn so much from the love others have experienced with God’s creatures. I not only recommend Charlie: A Love Story but also Marley & Me. Love ya, Kim
