by Lena, Lund, Sweden (Sweden): This is such a great and moving story told with so much empathy. The way Emily Spurr describes Ray, her loss and her loneliness and how Rae tries to handle her situation, the love of her dog Splinter and the growing friendship with Lettie, the grumpy old lady next door and how it becomes a total life change for both of them… it is all overwhelming and has to be read! The end I will not mention. It is a great book!
